The founding of Pivigo
When Dr Kim Nilsson, our CEO was thinking of leaving her successful career in Astronomy she too was daunted with the idea of transitioning from academia to industry.
After realising that she was more excited by a career in business than in science, Kim completed an MBA at Cranfield University in order to learn about business and start a new career. This new career was an entrepreneurial one, and the Pivigo journey started during the MBA, when she joined forces with co-founder and fellow MBA Jason Muller, our COO.
Kim and Jason wanted to combine Kim’s experiences from the challenges of converting a scientific career into an industry career, with Jason’s business knowledge and experience - and in 2013 Pivigo was born.
“We look forward to what the future will bring!”

We have fun because we love what we do and we want our clients to enjoy working with us. We have grown from a few people into a much larger family, but we still believe in the same things we did on day one.

We found the whole S2DS experience a great way to work with bright, fresh and inquiring minds on new ideas for our business. The PhDs we had were outstanding and the whole project was very well supported by Pivigo throughout.Paul Ellis, CEO at BSD Studios
We enjoyed being a part of S2DS. It lead to a real improvement in the core part of the product, allowed us to see our data problems from a fresh perspective and lead to us offering to hire one of the participants for a full time role.Stephen Whitworth,

I was amazed by what can be achieved in only five weeks when such a diverse, talented and motivated team is brought together to work on a specific problem. Every session was an inspiring and illuminating interplay of ideas and the entire project was an invaluable learning experience for the mentors, students and the companies.Dina Radenkovic, CEO at Watch out Diabetes
