Do you need help making a customised App, or advice on how to grow your social media networks?  Would you like a website developed or redesigned so that it draws in visitors and generates leads for you?  Do you even know where to start when it comes to developing a digital strategy that works for your business?

These and many more questions relating to digital services and support are just a few of the issues that are tackled on a daily basis by the experienced team of people working at Darwin Digital.

Based in Lausanne, but offering services to companies in Geneva and beyond, Darwin Digital was co-founded in 2015 by two local entrepreneurs, Michael O’Sullivan and Daniel Kaempf. Originally from Ireland, Michael has over 20 years of sales, trade marketing, advertising and global brand development. Complementing his skills, Daniel has over 15 years of experience working in digital projects management, implementing online solutions for multinationals and agencies.

Talking about his business, Michael told, “At Darwin Digital we know about the challenges the digital revolution poses for businesses and organisations. A lot of start-ups and smaller business struggle to maximise the potential of the digital sphere and that’s where we provide direction and support.”

Asked what makes their business special compared to other organizations in the region offering similar services, Daniel told us, “Understanding your business digital needs is at the heart of everything we do. Our results-oriented web services and digital products are designed to help you achieve your business goals and commercial objectives. Based on trusted relationships with our clients, we deliver customised digital products that work.  It is also important to note that we are based at EPFL’s innovation centre in Lausanne with access to some of the latest technologies and software.”

To enable them to offer the best possible service to their clients, Michael and Daniel are always happy to partner with other entrepreneurs working in their field, as well as industry leaders and charities based in Lausanne and Geneva. Their clients include start-ups, SMEs, multinational enterprises, NGOs, research institutions and sports federations, who are looking for ways to accelerate their online growth through customized digital and web solutions.

To give you an idea of the kind of work that Darwin Digital likes to embrace, you can view a summary of the projects they have handled on their website here: One of their most recent projects, which had to be built in time for the Geneva Peace Talks on 21 September 2016, involved building a modern, fully responsive, video-oriented website that would allow easy and intuitive update of content by the client in the future.  You can read more about this project here:

One client, Matteo Sorci, Co-founder of nViso SA, who now helps Darwin Digital develop user-centric products and solutions for its clients, told about his experience of working with their team. “Darwin Digital delivered a webinar for nViso that reinforced our company’s position as an industry-leader, generated new leads and strengthened the relationships with our existing customers. Darwin Digital developed the content structure, the marketing materials and the technical set-up of the webinar.   They set up the technology and ensured the flawless delivery of a live webinar…We are very happy with their digital agency services and technical skills and continue to work with them developing new web-based products for our software.”
