3RIUS Design Innovation Lab HOLOD3CK MGEAR
of my greatest rewards of being plugged into the tech community is that I get to meet a lot of truly remarkable companies and the individuals that lead them. One individual I had the pleasure to meet recently is Robeco Clarete, the founder of a local Toronto start up called 3Rius Design Innovation Lab (www.3rius.com). His company started out by providing design and engineering solutions and has since grown significantly, opening its doors to support local ideas and early stage start-ups. Currently at their innovation lab, they are incubating a number of selected technology projects and housing early stage start-ups to grow and scale up into meaningful companies, offering resources in various stages of growth. A couple of products solutions / brands that were incubated at their lab include MGEAR and HOLOD3CK. Let’s take a look at each of these interesting brands below.
