How it all began

The story of Simplifai began in 2017 in Oslo with our founders, Bård and Erik, having their usual beer in a bar, watching a football match. Their conversation soon turned toward business ideas, as it normally did, and this time, they eventually started talking about Artificial Intelligence.

At that time, Erik was the Head of AI at Evry Financial Services, a leading Nordic tech, and consultancy company (today named Tietoevry). Whereas Bård led the software tenders and delivery department at Embriq AS, a leading supplier of industrial IoT technology, consultancy services, software, and IT services.
