Finnish Company SIQ Basketball Chooses Portland for New HQ
5 Jul 2022
"SIQ Basketball, which makes a technology to give amateur and pickup players the same technological insights as the pros, is the latest startup to pick Portland for a headquarters.
CEO Erik Anderson grew up in Los Angeles and went to school at Oregon State University. When he took over the startup in January 2021 he saw the opportunity to return to the Beaver State.
The company’s roots go back about 10 years but its current iteration has been around for five, Anderson said. It was started in Finland by Finnish former professional basketball player Harri Hohteri, who also has a background in computer science."
