Our story & vision

Hyphen’s story

Hyphen was born in 2018 as the result of a lengthy discussion on a two-day hike in the Swiss mountains, quickly growing into a thriving startup with a vision of what the future of work could look like.

Bonded by a shared empathy and sense of creative thinking, our team works hard to build the perfect partnerships for both clients undertaking ambitious projects and experts looking to utilise their skills on work that interests them. We see the huge potential of cross-functional teams in solving problems and believe that flexibility will be key to working effectively in the digital age.

We are a group of highly motivated, talented and hard-working colleagues pushing each other to create something original, keen to innovate rather than replicate. Entirely remote, our A-team comes from a diverse range of countries and backgrounds.

Our team is made up of everything from consultants at top-tier global consultancies to investment specialists, from award-winning authors and designers to disinformation experts, and from general staff officers to high-impact mission attachés in developing countries. We’re not your average company.
Even though Hyphen’s staff is scattered all over the globe, we are united by our values. Our A-team is flexible, intellectually curious and independent thinkers and we are relaxed while being rigorous. Details matter to us but we also like to step back and look at the bigger picture to identify new opportunities. These traits make working for Hyphen an enjoyable shared experience and we have fun coming together to solve problems.

Connection is important to us, both for helping our clients and contractors and for bonding as a team. Regular team briefings and quarterly retreats bring us together in an informal and personal way and our openness is something that benefits everyone.

Hyphen was built to do things differently. We want to provide clients and experts with superior service and contribute to changing the way the world works. Now is the time to be more through connection.
