The collaborative platform Elium, which enables knowledge-based organisations to digitize their knowledge sharing among employees, has raised 4 million euros during their series A funding round from Serena Capital and S.R.I.W.. The company aims to become the leader in the new “Knowledge Sharing Platforms” market, which is a new category of Enterprise Social Networks.
Elium was initially founded by CEO Antoine Perdaens and three other co-founders in 2008. The company, which was formerly known as “Knowledge Plaza”, now holds a stable market position thanks to numerous international projects. Some examples are Capgemini Consulting, Lafarge, Holcim, MSL Group and the International Committee of the Red Cross. These international companies make Elium stand out, demonstrating that their product can also prove to be very impactful on large corporate networks. The company has also succeeded in creating an own collaborative platform market centred on knowledge sharing. Some of their bigger competitors are Microsoft Sharepoint, IBM Connections and Jive Software.
