We are excited about
and love what we do.

OUR MISSION

We have built Brian in order to create real value for consultants, corporate developers and other high-paced business professionals. We do so by exploring innovative ways of connecting human talent, state-of-the-art technology and data. We aim to ‘generate’ time that our clients can invest in new business ideas or share with loved ones. We believe that, thanks to our independence, personal integrity and high data security standards we establish lasting trustful partnerships. We love what we do.

LEAP OF FAITH

Acceleration

The business accelerates, but a large share of professionals today deal daily with ‘standard’ operative tasks for which there are already smart tools and services available (translation, financial analysis, research, calculation model, and so on )

Complexity

It is increasingly difficult to keep track of the best services/tools und distinguishing between real value services and good marketing. Many professionals are ‘lost’ in the high number of options, solutions and data sources.

AI at the start

There are already online services and tools supporting multiple tasks of advisors. These tools are fast, instantly available, increasingly smart and, compared to their value, quite affordable. Considering the recent advances of AI, we believe to be just at the beginning.

Seeking simplicity

Accessing the smart features of multiple tools without data security concerns in ‘one place’ by using free natural language increases the efficiency but is also an exciting experience.

HOW IT BEGAN

(Founder’s story)

“It’s 10:00 pm. We work with high pressure on a proposal for an exciting consulting project. We want to integrate two slides from a different proposal but these are in German. We need them in English and we need them now. All team members are busy with other tasks (note: nobody likes to translate slides), support staff is not available on short notice… so I start to translate them by myself. In order to be faster, I copy-paste the slide sections to DeepL and back… I am impressed by the quality of the translation and think to myself… there must be an automated way for this!”
