Improving Communication and Education in Organisations

Our history and corporate development

NEOCOSMO was founded in July 2014 by Frank Milius and Dr. Volker Zimmermann. By now the Start-up has more than 20 employees at the main location in Science Park on campus of Saarland University and it’s surroundings.

NEOCOSMO is the second company that was founded by Frank Milius and Volker Zimmermann. They have built their first company, the imc AG, into one of the leading providers of e-learning solutions in Europe.

It is NEOCOSMO’s goal to make good use of digital magazines and social learning, video and collaboration platforms in companies and universities. The focus is always on the principles of simplicity, openness and a modern user experience.

Our philosophy

Our goal is to help organizations realize modern communication and training concepts. In doing so, we put users at the center of our software design. It’s primarily about a good user experience. It’s also about developing solutions that overcome problems with traditional concepts, of which we know that they don’t work well.

Frank Milius, Founder and CEO of NEOCOSMO

In-house magazines with integrated video portals and knowledge services will, in our view, become the centre of information in companies. They take care of tasks of employee information, tasks of communication and tasks of learning while using an integrated approach.
