The team that drives the COBIOM expert Swarm– About

The CO in COBIOM means radical collaboration for a better future of people and planet.

The BIOM comes from the biological term biome. Biomes are large areas on Earth with similar conditions, such as similar climates and similar living organisms. Plants or animals in any of the biomes have special adaptations that make it possible for them to exist in that area.

So, COBIOM is the sum of ecosystems with individuals that aim to make a difference by collaborating together.

Why the hexagon?

It’s a simple matter of geometry. Hexagons are the shape nature chooses to make the most efficient use of material and space. Bees create hexagons, because it consumes the least amount of wax while providing the most stability. For that reason, Darwin declared that the hexagonal honeycomb is “absolutely perfect in economizing labor and wax.”


Our vision is an economy where stakeholders cooperate to create true value for all people, the whole environment and the economy.


We want to establish a collaborative platform behind the idea of a swarm. A platform that incentivises the cocreation of innovative, disruptive solutions that transform companies into sustainable businesses.


Our values are collaboration to cocreate meaningful solutions for businesses and society, and to create true value for all stakeholders while sharing assets and revenue in a mutual beneficial way. Thus we reward collaboration, but not competition.
