What is your advice for start ups and scale ups who want to follow your footsteps and apply for the next cohort?

Try to be clear about a 1+1=3 opportunity for product and go-to-market collaboration with Hexagon from the outset. 

What did you enjoy most about working with Hexagon Sixth Sense? 

The Sixth Sense Team, and everyone else we interacted with at hexagon were helpful, generous with their time, and also fun to work with. And of course, taking the win on the demo day was really enjoyable

Do you think the process is designed to support innovation and how?

Absolutely. The really powerful thing is the fact that it is specifically focused on the manufacturing industry, so you get relevant expertise and the ability to test your propositions with a ‘real life’ audience.
