The BikeFinder history

Bicycle theft has become a recognised social problem. A few years ago, after a big bike theft during a World Cup race, Ole Martin asked himself how this problem could be solved. Could technology help bike owners fend off theft, or at the very least increase the chances of the owner reuniting with his or her bike?

He quickly realized that a tracking device with GPS and internet connectivity – suitable for any type of bike – would be the ultimate tool.

In 2014, the BikeFinder team started to develop an integrated tracking device for any type of bike. The device provides accurate tracking through GPS and GSM. Designed to track, collect and keep your bike safe, with a long battery life. It’s an elegant tool for the digital age, a tool for those who love the inspiration and clarity they get when they ride.

In 2017, BikeFinder was one of two winners in Petter Stordalens Strawberry million. Over 2000 different start-ups participated in the contest!

Today, BikeFinder has a diverse team of employees working together with some of the finest investors Norway has to offer. Together we work to create the ultimate tracking device for your bike.
