Combining business acumen
with business consultancy.

We are a 50-strong team of heroes on an odyssey, driven by the belief that we need to do what we do with true conviction. Our company is more than just a consultancy: it’s a place for hands-on people to call home. Because, deep down, we’re with Steve Jobs here: “Why join the navy if you can be a pirate?” It’s not about being a little cog in a big wheel: it’s about being at the wheel. And that is where you will find us – in the driver’s seat on our way to more lasting value for everyone in the mobility ecosystem. Since 2015.

MOBILITYMOBILITY

is our passion, with a heritage in the Automotive industry. We are transformers, working in diverse international projects, and making the digital transformation succeed. Software in the Car, IIOT, AI, autonomous driving, sometimes at the interface between OEM and suppliers. We love exploring the boundaries between the known and the unknown. We want to shape the transition of the industry with a focus on sustainability and help it reduce its environmental footprint.

Our passion is rooted in identification and bonding with our colleagues, giving us a deep professional fulfillment. We are avid and speedy sailors masterly navigating the seas of our business and tying knots to flexible networks for the benefit of our clients and ourselves. We want to shape our company by experimenting and exploring the new - and keep on growing a diverse crew on our vessel.
