Meet the Founder

SCOOCS founder, René Bohnsack, is an impact-driven entrepreneur (e.g., fitbase.de or venturely.io). He is also a Professor of Strategy and Innovation at Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics and the director of the Smart City Innovation Lab, a multidisciplinary research team that works on the latest topics in digitalization, business model innovation, and sustainable technologies.

We support all kinds of events (such as conferences or company presentations) on a virtual or hybrid mode. It is particularly important to us that our customers are presented in the best light, and that the participants forget during the event that the event is taking place on the computer or on the phone. Everyone should feel part of a whole.

Our Mission, Vision, and Values

Our vision, mission, and values form the foundation for all activities in our organization. Our purpose and beliefs are defined in the following statements:

Mission

We want to empower every host and event organizer to get the most out of their events and build a committed community, with top-notch technology, irreprehensible customer support, and the most sustainable and GDPR-compliant platform.

Vision

We believe in co-creating our future with our outstanding event managers community. A platform built with, and for, the event professionals community.

Values

Our Story

Born from necessity, SCOOCS was founded in 2019 when Rene Bohnsack accepted the challenge of hosting the sustainability conference he was organizing fully online; showing that academic conferences can be more sustainable. Years of experience in building digital platforms and a team that built award-winning e-learning platforms led the development of SCOOCS.

Using open innovation to increase intuitiveness and develop new features plus a proprietary Carbon Calculator, our virtual event platform allows us to create engaging events and measure carbon emission savings. Since the first conference, SCOOCS has saved thousands of tons of CO2 and is loved internationally by academia, industry, and non-profits for its engaging features, vast customization options, and its excellent support team.

We foster Sustainability

Along with the best technology, sustainability is at the very core of our mission: the drive of everything we do. We foster sustainability at all levels:

Environmental Sustainability

SCOOCS takes action to reduce CO2 emissions. Our virtual platform helps to save and measure thousands of CO2 tons and trees every year!

Social Sustainability

SCOOCS enables knowledge-sharing communities. Not-for-profit organizations benefit from SCOOCS' special pricing!

Economical Sustainability

SCOOCS empowers organizations to become more sustainable, allowing for the organization of larger events, with a larger reach, at lower economic and environmental costs.

Help us to achieve our goal of saving 1 million tonnes of CO2!
