Resident Round Table January Highlights
To help our residents identify and share their success stories and current challenges, we hold a monthly roundtable event. Over lunch, we exchange news of product breakthroughs, user feedback, market opportunities, funding and investment stories. These meetings are valuable as they allow residents to bring specific needs to the table and provides fresh perspectives and collectively sourced solutions.
On Thursday 10th January, residents came together for our first round table of the year, a monthly event designed to help collaboration and peer to peer support within the FuseBox. With the addition of some new faces in the studio and everyone only just gearing up from respective breaks over the holidays, this round table was dedicated mainly to introductions and establishing new relationships with each other.
We would love to offer warm welcome to the following residents that have joined us since our last round table.
