Ursula Suter

Executive Chairwoman and Co-Founder

Ursula’s interest in innovation led her to eLearning as early as 1997, when she co-founded and built one of the first international “web-based training” organisations (Viviance new education). Her expertise in instructional design allowed her to train the first generation of online education designers in Europe.

 

In 2002, Ursula shifted her energies to a new initiative when she co-founded Avallain. Under her leadership, Avallain has implemented large scale adaptive literacy systems and established a not-for-profit subsidiary in Kenya.

 

As Executive Chairman and Co-Founder, she has also overseen education projects in publishing, language training, health, engineering, sustainable agriculture and literacy for partners and customers including Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, Pearson, National Geographic Learning, Springer, Macmillan Education, Elsevier, the German Federal Government, Santillana, Grupo SM, Cornelsen, Klett and Westermann as well as several Fortune 500 corporations.

 

Ursula continues to explore new and adaptive systems that enhance learning effectiveness and is currently working on making Avallain’s services available in the Americas.

Did you know? Based in Switzerland, Avallain has a presence on five continents and its teams are multicultural and represent more than 14 different nations. Dedicated to social engagement, the Avallain Founders have created the Avallain Foundation, committed to taking high-quality digital education to those who need it most and unlocking human potential. Avallain aims for a zero-carbon footprint through offset donations and selective hosting arrangements.

Ignatz Heinz

President and Co-Founder

Ignatz wrote his first training software in 1984 while still in high school. The potential of educational technology continues to fascinate him and has turned his high-school hobby into a global digital education enterprise.

 

Driven by a desire to apply theory to practice, he co-founded and built one of the first international “web-based training” organisations (Viviance new education) in the 1990s. This allowed him the opportunity to work with industry leaders such as Steve Wozniak and to apply his knowledge to a range of cultures and industries, from publishing in Italy to Linux training in Silicon Valley.

 

Since 2002, as President and Co-Founder of Avallain AG, he has implemented large-scale education technology projects in publishing, language training, health, engineering, sustainable agriculture and literacy for partners and customers including Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, Pearson, National Geographic Learning, Springer, Macmillan Education, Elsevier, the German Federal Government, Santillana, Grupo SM, Cornelsen, Klett and Westermann as well as several Fortune 500 corporations.

 

His innovative ideas about the integration of technology and education have substantially informed the development of Avallain’s software products.
