About us

HARDAH is an R&D Swiss high-tech startup building digital trust solutions since 2015. We want to promote quality content on the web. We believe that every physical medium should be a vehicle of knowledge and information, in order to offer a better understanding of the world. We're going to achieve this goal by aggregating quality content on a new graphical user interface using the latest technologies.

We are building bridges between the digital world and the industrial world by making every physical product connected, social and interactive.

All our products are swiss-made, designed and coded in Geneva. Our values are integrity, neutrality, and simplicity. As evidenced by our Swiss private banking culture, we believe in long term relationships, mutual trust, respect and excellence in service. HARDAH is one of the most notorious startups in Switzerland (RTS, Bilan, AGEFI, Le Matin Dimanche, Couleur 3, Migros Magazine, Léman Bleu, TV5 Monde, 20 Minutes, Handelzeitung, Bilanz).

  • HARDAH has made 3 years of research at EPFL and Masschallenge, and 2 years of development to build our solution HARDAH One. In 2016 we launched a laboratory website to develop our new graphical user interface.

  • Our laboratory version was a favorite manager with thematic circles: sport, media, holidays, … Each bubble around a Circle was a link to a website related to the Circles topic.

  • We tested it in many universities and cities and had more than 20'000 feedbacks from Boston, Milan, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Athene, London, Barcelona, Lausanne, Yverdon, Fribourg, Lyon, Lisbon, Paris, Hanoi, and Geneva.

  • We then worked with journalists, scientists, hackers, blockchain experts, philosophers, politicians, thinkers, economists, writers, historians, doctors, and social networks’ users to develop the project HARDAH One allowing to connect every product and medium to the digital world.

  • Our founder has financed all the R&D to keep our independence and focus. We have secured strong strategic partnerships as well and we are now raising funds to launch the product internationally.
