We are honoured to announce that WIRED has identified us as a Trailblazer - a scale-up company that will have a significant global impact.
Cambridge – aka Silicon Fen – features many exciting, world-changing start-ups, so to be recognised as one of the small number of Cambridge Trailblazers is a huge accolade, especially when it comes from WIRED, who are famed for profiling companies and contributors that change the world.
In order to be recognised as a Trailblazer, companies had to have attracted significant out-of-region investment, demonstrate transformative use of technology, and be seeing major business growth and success.
Since we were founded in 2017, we’ve developed the foundational technology that overcomes the many obstacles that have faced computer-generated holography in the past. Major issues like long compute time, poor image quality, and a small field of view meant that holograms were only possible in limited conditions and, as such, could never viably make it into the hands of consumers.
But we’ve changed the game. Our technology enables holograms to be rendered in real-time, with high-quality images and a large enough field of view. This opens up significant applications like AR and VR gaming headsets, where users can enjoy more immersive and comfortable experiences than current technology allows.
Our pioneering technology and world-class team have attracted investment from all around the world, as well as major commercial projects with well-known, market-leading global companies.
In addition to identifying the Cambridge Trailblazers, WIRED has also announced its Trailblazers in Glasgow, London, Leeds and Oxford.
The other Trailblazers from our region are: Better Origin, Bit Bio, Cambridge GaN devices, CMR Surgical, Cydar Medical, EO Charging, Evonetix, Featurespace, Healx, Microbiotica, Paragraf, Phico Therapeutics, PragmatIC Semiconductors, Speechmatics, and The Supplant Company.
