Buildigo takes over the digital community Focore

Buildigo.ch the Swiss digital platform for hiring local craftsmen takes over the french-speaking forum Focore (focore.ch). This transaction makes Buildigo the largest digital community for housing in Western Switzerland, in line with its growth strategy.

"We are thrilled to welcome the incredible community of Focore to Buildigo, which shares the same passion for homes and gardens as our community members. Thanks to this combination, Buildigo’s users will benefit from a very valuable source of information through thousands of discussion topics.” says Raphael Breitschmid, CEO of Buildigo.

Focore.ch is the result of the takeover of an older forum named killou.net by Akim Sissaoui, a passionate swiss entrepreneur and homeowner who has been constantly feeding and moderating the forum for many years to make it the powerful community that exists today.

The future of the new unified community

The goal is now to develop the unified community, which still has a significant growth potential.

Both platforms will soon be merged to maximize synergies between the two communities. Buildigo users (especially craftsmen) will indeed become new contributors to the forum topics of the new unified community.

Buildigo, the swiss digital startup supported by the HEIG-VD, the University of Lausanne and InnoSuisse, is currently raising funds in order to continue its rapid growth on the Swiss market.
