Founded in 2017, GoodVision has a head office in London and an R&D centre in Prague, Czechia.

The fresh capital will help further boost the start-up's global growth in 2023 as it works to expand its distribution partnerships beyond existing ones in Denmark, Netherlands, New Zealand, the US, Chile, the Philippines, Australia and South Africa. GoodVision will also increase staff numbers across departments. The company sees strong future opportunities in digital mobility solutions, additionally linked to 5G roll-out and adoption of emerging technologies like connected cars, vehicle-to- everything (V2X) communication systems and autonomous driving.
