For Chentur Thambiah, co-founder of ARX– Augmented Reality Exercise, the move to GridAKL has meant invaluable introductions.
“Our main benefit has simply been connections through networking,” he says. “Grants, sponsorships and guidance in this area that we wouldn't have known about otherwise have been essential.”
ARX was created nine months ago and spent its early days in the AR/VRGar age. It was the Garage that led them to GridAKL during the World Masters Games.
Thambiah says t he services provided by GridAKL and BizDojo allowed the business to be fast tracked, and let the founders learn from the experiences of other startups and mentors.
“Overall it just made our ride much smoother, saving time and money .”
And would he recommend it for other start ups? “Definitely.”
Simply being around other startups who are in similar stages or even well ahead of you is a great way to learn, he says, and it also provides opportunities for collaboration.
“We feel in this game it is important to fail fast and fail forward. This space allows and encourages that.”
