Adtance GmbH & Co. KG was founded in 2015 by Nils Arnold and his brother Sven Arnold. The two founders have a clear vision: to revolutionize the support of SMEs with a completely new approach.

Nils and Sven Arnold recognized early on that the increasing digitization of the working world poses new challenges for medium-sized companies. Flexibility and speed are required in an increasingly international environment. From this understanding the idea for Adtance Support – and for the Adtance GmbH & Co. KG emerged.

The company is based in Wald-Michelbach, on the edge of the Odenwald. From this perspective – apart from metropolises but in the middle of Germany – Adtance is developing the high-tech solutions for tomorrow’s support.

CEO Nils Arnold is responsible for the operational business of Adtance GmbH & Co. KG, ie the areas of management, sales and marketing. Nils Arnold studied media management and communication at the DHBW in Mannheim and has already gained extensive experience through his activities as a software developer.
Sven Arnold is the Chief Technical Officer (CTO) responsible for technical management as well as the development of products and solutions. Sven Arnold has acquired his know-how at a computer science degree at the TU Darmstadt, as well as his long-standing job as a system administrator and network manager.
