Faveeo: Reinventing the way you search on the web

Founded in Geneva in 2012, Faveeo is reinventing  the way you search on the web. Supported by Alp ICT at the LeWeb’11, Faveeo’s project gained a lot of media awareness in Paris before pitching at Venture Night 2012 in Geneva during the Lift Conference. Faveeo is a web & social media discovery and monitoring tool. Their system discovers, filters and recommends relevant information according to the users’ queries and interests.

LESS: Making more with less energy
