We're applying to the 2018 WeWork Creator Awards!
WeWork is looking to support creators of all types -- including those using novel business models to pursue "careers with intention". Spire Starter serves as a business framework to allow optical engineers to do just that. Plus, we bring difficult-to-acquire optics expertise to those carving a path in a different sense: to the companies taking HW development to new levels.
The region Spire Starter belongs to will be having its awards show in Nashville, TN on September 13, 2018. We're entering the "Business Venture" category with the possibility to take home between $130k-$360k! That would go a long way to fund promotional travel. It would allow us to own even more fun tools to do our work, too!
While we have no way of knowing how far we'll get in the process, the application itself already proved rewarding. It's difficult to concisely describe what optical engineering is to laymen and how Spire Starter works, but we had to do just that -- and within 90 seconds.
Check out the video below to see examples of the types of systems we work on and a brief description of how we work. Hope to see you in Nashville in September!
