HiQ – think tank to the sky

What happens when you combine the power of art and IT to solve challenges that neither of them is able to solve alone? This question is the basis for an exciting collaboration between HiQ and Tillt.

Together, the two organisations have created Skylab, to be launched at the West Swedish Chamber of Commerce and Industry's Handelskammardagen event in Gothenburg, Sweden, on 3 October.

Skylab is an "idea lab" within which a composite team of HiQ consultants and artists from Tillt will be given 24 hours to solve a pre-determined problem.

"There are numerous challenges and areas in need of improvement, and we want to deal with one of these during our first Skylab. The exact problem we will be dealing with will be announced at the West Swedish Chamber of Commerce and Industry's Handelskammardagen event today at four p.m., but we can reveal that it is highly relevant to western Sweden," explains Jerker Lindstén, Managing Director of HiQ Göteborg.

Technology and art have long been intimately related, such as with the artist and engineer Leonardo da Vinci and Mona Lisa. HiQ and Tillt now aim to drive development through this joint art-technology project.

"Good ideas develop from the right combination of people in the right environment free from preconceptions. HiQ and Tillt understand one another and are different enough to generate innovation when they meet. HiQ is a value-driven company where the ability to innovate, simplify and solve problems go hand in hand. When we have fun at work, we create better results," Lindstén concludes.

HiQ expands in three Swedish cities following the acquisition of Headlight

Earlier this year, HiQ acquired Headlight Group, consisting of Headlight and Relight. This acquisition is an important part of HiQ’s expansion journey and will bring new job opportunities to the cities of Västerås, Örebro and Borlänge due to the great recruitment need. The news comes just weeks after the acquisition was announced and is an important part of HiQ’s effort to become Northern Europe’s leading tech consulting firm.

– We’re so excited to be expanding to Borlänge and in the cities of Örebro and Västerås! This merger enables us to expand further in the Swedish market and bring new jobs to all three cities while also affording us the opportunity to work together with companies in these areas. This is a good step for us on our expansion journey. Let’s go big!, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.

HiQ & BatteryLoop develop more efficient charging infrastructure

BatteryLoop, a company which gives electric car batteries a second life as energy storage systems, launched an energy storage system in the spring of 2021 which makes it possible, among other things, to build charging infrastructure in places where the electricity grid suffers power shortages. In collaboration with HiQ, BatteryLoop is now developing a digital platform that makes it possible to maximize power in the charging infrastructure. The digital platform enables an estimate as to how long a battery has left to live, thus its economic value in a circular business model.

– It is fantastic that our team is joining BatteryLoop on this journey. Circular business models and sustainability are important to us at HiQ, and it really shows with this project. There is an incredible amount to do to streamline the use of energy in society and this solution is an important contribution to that process, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.
