Graphmasters has evolved from a research team at the University of Cambridge, U.K. and King’s College London, U.K. Founders Iulian Nitescu and Christian Brüggemann started with a research project on efficient routing algorithms in large graphs about 5 years ago. In 2011 Sebastian Heise, as a senior system architect, joined the team and the research project evolved to a product, so as the team evolved to a company. In February 2013 the Graphmasters GmbH was officially founded and counted three members. After a long phase of evaluations from major navigation system providers, we were able to incorporate our routing engine into existing the navigation systems such as BOSCH. Today, we count 11 team members in two offices. Hanover, Germany is the place where product development and testing happens. Robert Dohrendorf complements the management team as experienced MBA in international business. Graphmasters provides apps and services to solve traffic management issues for smart cities and optimize trips for CEP services and logistic industries.
