Countless studies have shown the benefits of diversity in company teams. Diverse teams are shown to be more innovative, understand customers better and make smarter decisions. These are all benefits that ultimately translate into economic gain for businesses. So why aren’t more startups doing more for diversity?

According to a McKinsey Study, companies with the highest diversity rates have a 36% higher profitability than those with poor ones.

It’s a well-known fact that women are still underrepresented in the tech sector today. Last Wednesday at Breega, we therefore hosted a workshop to talk about professional equality with our startups. We…

Wire transfer fraud is a real burden for Financial teams and a common problem for businesses; according to a recent study conducted by Euler Hermes, it was the number one cause of cyber attack experienced by companies in 2020.

Technology, in all its forms, has become the driving force in both our personal and professional lives. And one of the most notable changes in the workplace over the past two decades has been the digitalisation of work documents with the vast majority of company data today being stocked on private servers or the cloud.

In spite of the many advantages of digitalisation, retrieving and exploiting data is often still an endeavor due to the sheer volume and heterogeneity of the company documents it’s contained in (emails and their attachments, contracts, reports, memos, studies, legal/ regulatory documents…).

Imagine therefore a…
