Manuel Grenacher, b. 1981, Swiss born computer scientist based in Zurich, is co-founder of both Coresystems and Mila.com (CEO of the latter). In 2006 he started up Coresystems with student friends in Windisch CH. Mil, a spinoff of Coresystems, connects neighbors to help one another with technical problems, for example. Swisscom has courageously engaged and uses the “friends” who are former employees or neighbors, to troubleshoot technical problems other neighbors may have. Instead of calling in an expensive technician, a “friend” can be summoned via Mila. Ratings, photo and skills for example can be viewed online. For a business, this is a chance to exceed customer satisfaction via a collaborative economy. For more on collaborative economy, see Jeremiah Owyang’s presentation.
