Cards on the table! For far too long, mental illness was considered a taboo subject, and working and overtime until the doctor came was considered desirable. But mental health is neither a private matter that takes place only within one’s own four walls, nor a privilege reserved for individuals. Everyone has a right to it, always and everywhere – even and especially in the workplace.
Our mission? We make mental health at work a full service and are the shoulder to lean on that everyone needs at one time or another. We take on what many fail to do because of a lack of knowledge, time and resources: the implementation of the „risk assessment of mental stress“ prescribed in the German Occupational Health and Safety Act (ArbSchG). Goodbye incomprehensible legal texts and paper chaos – hello Lene Health.
And the best part? Increased employee loyalty, reduced sickness costs and lost days, and increased attractiveness for Gen Z are simply added as goodies, without further burdening HR departments. Lene Health is a digital, holistic solution for now and the future;for employers, employees and the next generation of the labor market. Everyone talks about mental health – we just do it.

VisionAI / Recommendy
As former online retailers ourselves, we used to see, on a daily basis, that most powerful AI technologies are time-consuming and expensive to integrate. With VisionAI we want to change that and make access to AI as easy as possible for all retailers.
We empower ambitious online retailers with AI technologies that, up until now, were only available to industry giants because of their stranglehold on data. We have built a platform through which retailers can connect several AI tools to their stores, instantly bringing them to the next level.
These technologies include tools that automatically find matching accessories for any product in the store, the world’s best search based on visual AI, and the ability to offer Shop The Look like Zalando or SHEIN.
VisionAI fights against a system in which lifeless marketplaces literally burn returned items, underpay employees, and fuel a perpetual price war to dominate the online market.
We dream of a flourishing eCommerce landscape shared by numerous individual stores, each with a compelling shopping experience. We work hard every day to achieve this goal.
Making eCommerce “insanely great ‟.
OCELL helps to maximize the potential of our forests as carbon sinks to make a significant contribution to climate mitigation.
With OCELL’s ‚Dynamic Forest‘ software, forestry companies can manage their forests more efficiently and sustainably. For this purpose, aerial photographs are processed with additional data sources and AI into ‚digital twins‘ of the forest. These provide insights into forest growth, current CO2 storage capacity, and predict optimal forest management, among other things.
Based on the data collected in the software, OCELL will also launch high-quality CO2 certificates this summer. The idea is that forest owners will no longer be paid solely for logging but for the preservation of healthy forests as well. At the same time, companies will take financial responsibility for (non-reducable) emissions and support climate projects.
However, CO2 certificates are often (rightfully) criticized. Yet, the idea is crucial. While CO2 reduction must be prioritized, we can’t achieve the 1.5-degree target without carbon sinks. That’s why OCELL will introduce data-driven and reliable CO2 certificates to support climate mitigation.
