Jobzippers in the Media

TEDx Talk on Youth Unemployment and Entrepreneurship as a Solution

The CEO of HR Matching, Peter Vogel, recently gave a TEDx talk at the IMD in Lausanne.

In his presentation, Peter explores the future of the labor market and the role of entrepreneurial ecosystems. The technological revolution not only changed the way we work and live, but who we are. The “Next Generations” are facing the highest youth unemployment rates and at the same time employers have entered a fierce competition for talents. This huge challenge can only be solved by the next generation itself, in re-defining the labor market of the future. Establishing assessable and healthy entrepreneurial ecosystems has to become priority #1 of policymakers and practitioners if we want to ensure that the terminology “Lost Generation” will always remain a piece of history.

HR Matching AG selected as a 2012 Red Herring Top 100 Europe

Amsterdam, Netherlands – Red Herring announced its Top 100 award in recognition of the leading private companies from Europe, celebrating these startups’ innovations and technologies across their respective industries.
Red Herring’s Top 100 Europe list has become a mark of distinction for identifying promising new companies and entrepreneurs. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype,, YouTube, and eBay would change the way we live and work.
“Choosing the companies with the strongest potential was by no means a small feat,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across Europe to the Top 100 Winners. We believe HR Matching embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. HR Matching should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was the strongest it has ever been.”
Red Herring’s editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation, management quality, strategy, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the “buzz” and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in Europe.

Jobzippers receives the CTI Startup Label

Just one day before our Jobzippers Entrepreneurial Speakers Series did our CEO, Peter Vogel, and CTO, Johannes Hübner, go to Bern to present in front of the CTI Label Commission. This label constitues the final step of the coaching process offered by CTI. We had a great coach (Christoph Heidelberger) and learned a lot during these sessions.

On Tuesday, November 29th, we successfully completed this coaching and received the CTI Startup Label. Each year only around 20-30 companies receive this governmental label. The label confirms that a company either already has or has the potential of sustainable growth, a capable and knowledgable management team, access to the market and a functional product or service.



We are very happy and proud and would once again say thank you to CTI Startup for the great support!
