Hi, we’re team Swae!

We’re on a mission to bring all voices to the table and show every organization the power of collective intelligence from within.


We came together out of shared frustration in the lack of voice most people have with big decisions that significantly impact their lives. 

Lack of voice is all around us, with our customers, colleagues and citizens. We’re here to tackle the issue that millions experience, head on. 

Each one of us come from different backgrounds, but are connected by a motivation of having lived through poor decision-making processes.

Meet the core team

Swae is stacked with entrepreneurs, political scientists, philosophers, technologists spanning the idea management, innovation, governance, game theory, organizational change, and artificial intelligence space.
