Our Partners

Our work
is only as strong as our partnerships

We are proud to have partnered with institutions that are working hard to change the way people work, create, and design for the future.

One of the great benefits of being housed within an internationally recognized research institution is that we have been able to connect with partners and individuals from all fields - developing collaborations with scientists, artists, designers and leaders who are shaping the world we live in and innovating future technology and experiences.

"The relationship we have now with the IC is the best kind of relationship, where it has changed from a customer relationship to a partnership. We have really come to respect each other as people, which transcends what organization we work in. People who are living at that cross section of tech and purpose and empowerment. "
