With Lytt, we have set ourselves the goal of fighting social injustice in the workplace. Many people ask themselves “who can I turn to in confidence?” when they experience discrimination and other forms of disadvantage in the workplace and do not speak up. A large part of all grievances is still endured out of a lack of discretion and fear of further discrimination that goes along with it.
We believe that something must change.
With Lytt, we have developed the first digital assistant, through which employees can anonymously and securely communicate misconduct, concerns and feedback and receive help in a protected dialogue. Companies that introduce Lytt clearly position themselves for a fair and respectful cooperation and thus give their employees an open ear – anytime and anywhere.

We are hungry for new knowledge and firmly believe that technology and science are vital to preventing injustice in the workplace. That’s why we always question the status quo and look for answers from users, customers, experts and our own team. The response from customers and institutes (e.g. the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy) illustrates the need for our product.
When we started our studies in Copenhagen, the idea of a digital confidant for employees did not let go of us. So we took a heart and moved back to Germany – but not without taking something with us from Denmark.
“Lytt” comes from the Scandinavian language and means to listen.
Both the name and our logo should reflect the vision and history of our goal.
We, Lara von Petersdorff-Campen and Marvin Homburg, graduated together from WWU in Münster and then moved to Copenhagen Business School for our Master’s degree. Driven by our vision, we quickly returned to Germany and want to revolutionize corporate culture with our digital solution.
We are currently in the current batch of the Founders Foundation, one of the top accelerators in Germany.
The decision for a digital assistant was made on the basis of the many interviews we conducted with patients and employees. Nowadays, people like to communicate content in a conversational way and prefer the dialog-like chat function with our solution.
