"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards."
- Søren Kierkegaard
The history of STACKFORCE GmbH began in 2002, when Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sikora from Baden-Württemberg Cooperative State University Lörrach founded the Steinbeis Transfer Center for Embedded Design and Networking (stzedn). Since then, the team around Prof. Dr. Sikora has been working on various projects in the field of embedded conectivity. In 2005, Prof. Dr. Sikora additionally founded the Steinbeis Research Institute for Wireless Communication (sfidk) and in 2007, the Steinbeis Innovation Center for Embedded Design and Networking (sizedn) to also work on research projects.
In 2011 there was an important change. Prof. Dr. Sikora joined Offenburg University of Applied Sciences. Based on that step, the research projects were shifted to his team at the University Offenburg and the stzedn finally turned into a completely autonomous entity for design services and engineering. The next logical step was to found an independent company to offer embedded connectivity solutions: STACKFORCE GmbH was born.
