Viktor Calabrò started his career as a process optimizer in the IT sector with an ever-increasing desire to realize his own entrepreneurial dreams and founded an event agency. While managing this successful start-up, he was often confronted with the dilemma of finding temporary staff at short notice that could satisfy his staffing needs. In consideration of this, Viktor Calabrò developed a vision to revolutionize the market for personnel staffing solutions by founding a fully automated staffing platform called Coople (former STAFF FINDER), which today can fill 98% of all job requests within four hours. In this regard, Viktor created the world’s first on-demand market place for flexible staffing solutions and coined the term “just in time staff management”. Within only six years, Coople has registered over 100’000 employees and 6’000 employers in Switzerland. In 2014, Viktor Calabrò has been awarded the title Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst and Young. He was also a finalist of the Swiss Economic Awards in 2015. In 2016, Disrupt 100 has listed Coople as one of the 100 most disruptive companies in the world.
