Founded by Dirk Müller-Remus in Berlin on 21 November 2011 with investment from the London- and Munich-based Ananda Social Venture Fund, auticon is the first enterprise that exclusively employs adults on the autism spectrum as IT consultants.
Inspiration for the company came when Mr Müller-Remus’ son was diagnosed with Asperger’s. Mr Müller-Remus was dismayed by the employment prospects on offer to autistic people, and decided to build a company which created long term sustainable jobs for adults on the autism spectrum.
Based on significant growth and investment in the German market, auticon expanded into the UK and France in early 2016; followed by Switzerland, USA, Italy, Australia and Canada in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
auticon UK currently has offices in London and Edinburgh but operates across the country.
On 20 October 2016, auticon announced Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group, and UK charity, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, as new investors in auticon.
