Signavio is a vendor of Business Process Management (BPM) software based in Berlin and Silicon Valley. Its main product is Signavio Process Manager, a web-based business process modeling tool.


The company was founded by a team of alumnae from Hasso Plattner Institute (HPI) in Potsdam, Germany.[1]

Prior to Signavio, the founders were involved in[vague] development of the world's first web modeler for BPMN at HPI.[citation needed] This technology, known as the "Oryx project", was published under an Open Source license and served as blueprint for the Signavio Process Manager.[citation needed]

Signavio is headquartered in Berlin, Germany.[citation needed] In 2012 the company was incorporated in the United States as Signavio Inc. with an office in Burlington, Massachusetts.[citation needed] The company is fully owned by the founders and staff.[citation needed]


In 2011 the German Federal Ministry of Economy and Technology named Signavio "ICT startup of the Year"[2] and selected the firm for its "German Silicon Valley Accelerator" program.[3]
