Zapnito. Be the destination for expertise.


‘If experts are at the heart of every organisation, then expertise is at the core of our focus’

With over 300 million bloggers, internet trolls and fake news polluting the web, trusted information is needed now, more than ever


Trusted sources of expertise can be hindered by old technology and true expertise gets drowned out by social noise.

Zapnito was founded in 2013 by Charles Thiede and Jon Beer to solve this challenge, creating a next generation communication and expert community platform with services that help organisations like yours be the destination for expertise.

Zapnito Culture and Values

Zapnito is run by a mix of corporate veterans and people just starting out in their careers. Zapnito is the sum of our customers and partners, our Advisors and our (amazing) team. As an employer we believe that we need to treat everyone like part-owners in the business - and indeed they are. That’s not just with stock options; we believe in an inclusive participation in all the decisions within the business. That is anything from from working with an investor or decisions on the product and whether or not to create a juice bar. These are just words, but we try to live by them daily.

What Zapnito customers say:

"Zapnito provides us with the capability to create branded expert networks for our clients and partners. We believe it is a key part of our consulting toolkit: to package our expertise in a way that isn’t dependent on our time."

Steven Inchcoombe, Chief Publishing Officer & Board Member, Springer Nature


"In the coming maturation of the global Internet, meaning, timeliness and personal relevance is indeed more powerful than mere volume, speed or indeed 'being free'; and finding 'wisdoms' will beat the mere provision of data or information. Zapnito offers a powerful platform that fits this new paradigm just as video is becoming the next "text". Expect big things."

Gerd Leonhard, CEO, Futurist, The Futures Agency


"Scientific, technical and medical publishing is indeed the original social knowledge community and network and for the first time since the birth of the Internet, a platform that truly focuses on this idea and makes it work has been born. That is Zapnito and we are pleased to be an early adopter of this important capability. This is social knowledge without the noise."

Phil Garner, Managing Director, Future Science Group
