Project Description 
Coachademy is a mobile app for corporate wellness to make businesses healthier, more sustainable and more productive. 22% of European workers suffer from too much stress and 60% of all work leaves are related to stress and burnout. This is costing companies in Europe €20b each year. Coachademy is a dedicated platform for online coaching that offers a secure and effective channel to connect and seek the advice of a licensed coach through chat and voice calls —anywhere and anytime. Coaching topics include: stress management, productivity, and work-life balance. We actively target corporations to offer Coachademy as a benefit to their employees. Corporate Plans include special features to keep track of the workforce’s wellness in an anonymous and aggregated Corporate Dashboard. Coachademy counts on valuable Corporate and Public Partnerships, including the lead player in the Wellness Industry: Technogym, H-FARM Ventures, the University of Padova (IT), the University of Twente (NL), and the counselling organizations from the city of Amsterdam Spirit! and Qpido.
Goals & Challenges
Coachademy is currently in Beta with a group of 50 licensed, professional Coaches. The group of Beta Users is providing us feedback on UX and user engagement. Currently we are focusing on Corporate pilots and trials, collaborating with Large Enterprises in Italy and the Netherlands. Our challenges is provide a useful solution for companies and their employees, integrating Fiware GE and open data, that offers the required safety and quality to our customers.
 
The choice of FIWARE
We integrate 4 FiWare GE into our existing app Coachademy: Docker, KeyRock Identity Management, AuthZForce and Kurento Advanced Media Server. These FIWARE enablers , make it possible to develop a safe and scalable modular infrastructure in a short period of time.
Products developed with FIWARE
The integration of FiWare enablers  increases our competitive advantage towards corporations by providing a trusted and secure platform and real-time insights and feedback by analysing the media/data streams.
 
Benefits & accomplishments
The FiWare and FINODEX events and communities offer new connections with other startups, potential clients and partners. Their feedback has been very valuable to us. The events we attended resulted in significant attention in terms of website visits and downloads. Social media and online communities were especially useful to receive tips and background articles.
