Software company from Silicon Valley to open office in Gothenburg
Apex-AI has chosen Sweden to get closer to existing and potential customers in northern Europe, and to gain better access to Swedish know-how and expertise.
“I am incredibly pleased to welcome a Swedish team to the Apex.AI family,” says Jan Becker, CEO of Apex.AI.
In addition to the head office in Palo Alto, the company has chosen to establish offices in Munich, Stuttgart and Gothenburg, strategically selected locations where there are strong networks of software specialists. Specifically, this is where much of the development takes place within Autosar, the open and standardised software that car manufacturers, subcontractors and developers of control units for vehicles have agreed on for about 20 years.
“With their expertise, our new colleagues are expected to strengthen our customer-centric approach to developing safe and certified software for autonomous driving. We start with a small team in Gothenburg, but will soon expand significantly,” says Jan Becker.
The open collaborative climate that prevails between the private and public sector, and academia, in the Gothenburg region is something that Apex-AI is attracted to and wants to contribute to. Business Region Göteborg has been supporting Apex.AI during the establishment process, and shares the company's ambition to create sustainable jobs and growth in the region.
“The establishment of Apex.AI in Gothenburg is proof that the region's expertise in automotive electronics is world-class. Gothenburg has a long tradition of Autosar development and Apex.ai has identified this,” says Joel Görsch, investment advisor for automotive at Business Region Göteborg.
“For the Gothenburg region, it also means that the digitalisation of the automotive industry is further strengthened.”
