Resident Round Table February Highlights
Our Resident Round Tables are monthly opportunities for our residents to share updates and any stumbling blocks about their work with each other to encourage the exchange of fresh perspectives and collective problem solving.
This February, with the encouragement of Spring in sight, we heard waves of exciting developments from our residents and news of fascinating projects either underway or in the pipeline. Here is a quick run through of the best share worthy pieces of news this month…
Gillian Spragg has been invited to join a cohort to benefit from the Nesta, The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) and technology innovator, Magic Leap’s first ever Fellowship programme. The Fellowship is to explore the future of theatre innovation and provide access to cutting edge immersive technology, skills and expertise.
Eric DeGolier and his tech team from BodyRocket successfully executed their first public demonstration of the world’s first device that measures aerodynamic drag on bikes at IOT (Internet of Things) meetup at Barclays Eagle Labs Brighton.
Esin Yavuz could finally announce that her company Cyanapse have been officially accepted to the Machine Intelligence Garage (MIG) programme delivered by the Digital Catapult. The MIG programme provides access to computation power and expertise to help empower and develop businesses on the cohort.
Helping them to raise their profile, connect with and learn from other founders, mentors, investors and influencers, Jonathan Barrowman and Ali Goode from Gorilla in the Room announced themselves as one of the twenty finalists in the Tech Nation Rising Stars grand final in March.
And resident Gianluca Memoli, lecturer in Informatics at Sussex University, startup; Metasonics also gained the same success and secured a prestigious place alongside Gorilla in the Room in the Rising Stars competition.
And lastly, collaboration is alive and well in the FuseBox with news of Ed Silverton and Sophie Dixon from Mnemoscene working with Alex Peckham. Artists Iona Scott and Rachel Henson from Outshift are putting their heads together to combine their practices. Plus 360 capture specialist Michael Danks from 4GroundMedia is working with almost everyone!
We are looking to sharing updates on all these projects in next month’s Round Table.
