For many years, the Panenco and Sentigrate teams have literally been working closely together with bordering office spaces in the Leuven high-tech ecosystem. Firstly through KU Leuven Kick, the student incubator center, followed by a dedicated office within I&I, the Innovation and Incubation center of KU Leuven.
The Panenco team grew into a team of 35 people focused on digital product development, covering the whole route from initial product strategy towards design, software delivery and growth. The team is managing a portfolio of scaling software products and ventures that are working their way towards product-market fit.
Sentigrate, founded by Thomas De Moor and Gert Trekels and currently 10 people strong, historically has a strong data engineering and science focus, particularly in the area of IoT and sensor data.
Through the combined knowledge base and expertise, both companies will be able to deliver an even more holistic product-focused offering to clients, especially relevant in the high-tech cluster surrounding Leuven.
"Engineering and scientific foundations are the very core of every ambitious technology product. However, the product development journey paints a much broader picture, covering key strategic decisions turned into a product roadmap and growth dynamic. Sentigrate is a logical technical partner for us to structure and to make sense of the large collected data volumes." - Egwin Avau, Panenco
Both companies, while remaining fully independent, are looking forward to tackling ambitious technology and business challenges together.
"As we aspire to further strengthen our data engineering and science foundations, Panenco is a logical product-focused partner with the ability to bridge strategic objectives into a refined end-to-end user experience and growth stream." - Thomas De Moor, Sentigrate
