At Numascale, Odd Jostein helped implement a shift in their go-to-market strategy, allowing him to spin out the software division into AIA Science.
Odd Jostein took the opportunity and went on to establish, lead and grow this new organization. Odd Jostein has very high ambitions for AIA Science and is building a rapidly growing enterprise that fuels the widespread technological transformation.
