About us

Our vision, history, team and contacts
Imagine if every person on Earth would take 30 minutes a week to think about what is most important.
We want to support strategy implementation. To enable people to nurture more self-awareness and agency. And to build a genuine understanding of the state of the organization through data from the source that actually matters - the people. Our vision is a world where leaders see a 100X return from investing in their people.

Our history
March 2016
Dima Syrotkin and Lauri Paloheimo founded Pandatron. Idea at the time: marketplace for corporate training.
March 2018
Came to the conclusion that the problem is not in finding trainers but in finding good trainers. Started providing evaluations of the training impact. Brought Jere Partanen on board as the COO.
March 2019
Our evaluations have shown that the problem isn't the training itself, but the application of the training. Started providing a micro-coaching service.
February 2020
Started working on scaling micro-coaching service with chatbot technology. Brought Tiago Sampaio on board as the CTO.
September 2021
Following great customer feedback focused on the full automation of coaching and change management use cases. Raised pre-seed funding of $0.7M from Gorilla Capital and a few angels to accelerate growth.
