MIAMI — The Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity and software provider 1NCE is making Miami the location for its North American headquarters.
Cologne, Germany-based 1NCE, founded in 2017, identified Miami through a nationwide search process and the support of the Office of Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, according to the company this month.
The company will now begin the search for a permanent location to house the 100-150 new employees it plans to hire locally within the next three years.
Ivo Rook, COO for 1NCE, will also serve as president, North America.
1NCE offers its IoT solution at a global flat rate. Last September, 1NCE closed $50 million funding round led by SoftBank and Deutshce Telekom to fund expansion in the U.S. and Asia.
It has offices in multiple global locations: Amsterdam; London; Rome; Paris; Warsaw; Hong Kong; Hamburg, Germany; and Riga, Latvia.
“With an enormous number of digital innovation companies and first-class universities as well as strong logistics and infrastructure, Miami offers fertile ground for 1NCE’s ambitious growth plans in the U.S. and beyond,” Rook said.
“And thanks to Mayor Suarez, we now have an amazing new base for our future U.S. workforce to supercharge 1NCE’s innovation.”
Suarez said 1NCE is “an exciting addition to the rapidly expanding roster of dynamic tech companies that call Miami home.”
“Miami’s talent pool for tech is one of the most desirable in the nation, and 1NCE will have great success finding the best and brightest to join its team,” Suarez said.
