Shaping the Future of Mobility with Digital Twins

Our Mission


TWAICE was founded in June 2018 by Michael Baumann and Dr. Stephan Rohr with the vision to leverage digital twins to accelerate the transition to emission-free mobility and green energy supply.

Our mission is to make testing and operating of complex technical systems like batteries simple with the appropriate knowledge always being readily available. We merge software, machine learning and battery expert knowledge to permit simple and cost-effective battery development, testing and operation for our customers.

Our Values


We are curious innovators

We constantly challenge the status quo and never stop learning. Thereby we come up with creative ideas and solutions which we rapidly transform into innovative products.

We are customer centric

We are here to solve customer problems. We put our customers first and become experts by listening to their feedback.

We are passionate about our work

We have a strong passion for what we do, and we are proud of what we accomplish. We are relentless and driven by our common vision and we carry everybody around us along.

We think BIG and start small

We don’t welcome small thinking, dreams sometimes must scare you, otherwise, they aren’t big enough. Broken down into small pieces, anything is possible with our team.

We are givers, not self-serving takers

We give back more than we take. We are supportive and setting people up for success. Because as our environment grows, so we do.

We get things done, better and faster

We take responsibility and work super hard to achieve our goals. Naysayers are just fueling our ambitions. If some ideas don’t work out, we iterate and improve. Backing down is never an option.
