Our Story

In every industry there’s someone building the future, whether it’s food, architecture, design, clothing or space rockets. In car connectivity it’s us.

High Mobility was founded in 2013 in Gothenburg, Sweden, by Risto Vahtra and Kevin Valdek, and moved to Berlin that year to join the Startupbootcamp Smart Mobility & Transportation accelerator program.

In spring 2016, High Mobility got BMW as a client and built a futuristic UX prototype through BMW Startup Garage. It was time to open our API platform to a small developer ecosystem.

In 2017, High Mobility focused fully on car telematics data. Our mission became to bring all car brands and developers together in one effortless ecosystem.

Today, we are pioneering a single data delivery infrastructure for modern businesses bundled with great user experience.
