Why Forkbeard

Indoor positioning remains one of the unsolved technology challenges.

We waste endless of hours yearly searching for people and stuff indoors. When you enter a building, GPS goes black. Indoors, we are where we were outdoors prior to GPS and search engines.

Our mission is to provide the world with the ability to locate people in the great indoors. Forkbeard´s solution pinpoints a person’s position indoors using ground-breaking patented ultrasound technology, standard hardware, and the device already in your pocket – a smartphone. 

Bringing accurate, affordable and scalable positioning services to the indoors will make our lives easier, fuel innovation and bring massive benefits to users and businesses. 

We are working with leading companies internationally, and are looking for the right people to join our team on a journey of growth.
