Meet Hermant Sikarios
Hemant Sikaria is CEO and co-founder of Sibros, a Silicon Valley-based Connected Vehicle platform company, leading the way in automotive software through end-to-end Over-the-Air (OTA) software updates, data collection, fleet management and advanced vehicle analytics.
Founding Sibros and watching it grow, facing everyday challenges and rewards that a startup
brings is the career achievement I am most proud of. Both my father and brother have been
entrepreneurs all their life and have always inspired me to become one. Sibros has experienced
exponential growth, expanding from just one tiny office to multiple offices globally in less than
two years, raising over $15 million in venture funding, working with top automotive experts and
advisors, and signing up new connected vehicle customers at a rapid pace. The future looks
bright, as we continue to add more incredible team members and customers, and we look
forward to increasing our impact on the entire automotive industry across the world. I am
thankful to see it all made possible by the hard work and passion of the entire Sibros team and I
am truly excited to see what the future holds for Sibros.
