The name “Silobreaker” comes from the founders’ idea of wanting to break from the traditional (and often political) “silos” of information that still exist inside and outside many organizations and throughout media and the information industry. Silobreaker’s aim is to demonstrate the benefits and strengths of a single platform that combines information aggregation with analytical tools and collaboration features, so that information regardless of its type and source can be shared and dealt with across user groups.
The core team combines programming excellence with long-term experience of delivering business success.
