„The tech world needs these special skills that only we women have. We think more broadly, consider more influencing factors.”
Virginia Hess, Director DedomenaA startup from the University of Basel
Virginia has been fascinated since childhood with how people and cities function and how they have evolved over time into what we know today. Today‘s cities are often not very people-friendly, which led Virginia to found Dedomena
, an urban data analytics platform with the vision to design cities on a human scale. Dedomena pro- vides broad-linked digital data to identify behavioral patterns and trends in public spaces at any given time so that urban planners, governments, and businesses can better plan, design, manage, and promote local activities.
Through her background in Business Management, Virginia became interested in digital techno- logies when she co-created an application for young bank customers at her former employer, a big Swiss bank.
