Vima has been founded in 2015 by Dr. Raphaël Héraïef. Raphaël is a physician by training, but has been fascinated by Behavioural AI technologies after Meeting Prof. Gatica-Perez, already while finishing his medical studies. After creating a first company active in Human Ressources (Unono), he started the Vima project, as a spinoff from the IDIAP Research Institute in Martigny, Switzerland. His enthusiasm and conviction led to the company doing its first round of financing in 2019. After working for two years as the CEO of the company and as a board member, he is now pursuing other entrepreneurial project but is keeping close ties with Vima. Raphaël has been instrumental in the development of Vima’s technology and product, as well as the other projects that the company is pursuing.​
