Founded in October 2021 as a spin-off of the Fraunhofer Institute for Software and Systems Engineering ISST in Dortmund, sovity offers data sovereignty as a service. The start-up provides technology for Data Spaces based on standards such as International Data Spaces (IDS), Gaia-X or Eclipse Foundation. Thus, sovity allows companies the easiest and fastest access to Data Spaces. Using Data Spaces, companies exchange a wide range of information to optimize processes or products and develop new business models. The managing directors of sovity, Sebastian Kleff (Co-Founder, CEO) and Dr. Sebastian Opriel (Co-Founder, CTO), have several years of expertise in the field of data exchange and related use cases, e.g. from Fraunhofer research and IDS, as well as several years of experience in management consulting at BCG Platinion.
