Who We Are

Vehcon is a startup at the Georgia Tech Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC).  As innovators in vehicle telematics, mobile data analytics and mobile applications, we know that powerful, efficient, hardware-less solutions are the answer for tomorrow's connected vehicle.  And we’re leading the way there.

 

That’s the “official line” – but also know we’re a company run by serial entrepreneurs with solid track records, and we’re building a great company as we turn the telematics world upside-down.  If you’re looking for an opportunity to learn, work with great people, and make a real contribution – Vehcon is a place where you can do all of that.
