It's our first birthday - but it's kind of all about you

Today we celebrate our very first birthday here at GridAKL - a community, connection point and space for innovative ideas to flourish. 

It has been a big year for us, and for our resident businesses who have grown from our initial four startups upon opening - to 15 resident companies. Our resident community covers everything from culture curation (Weirdly) through to geo data (Koordinates) and data visualisation (Mohio). The resident community is made up of 63 awesome humans, including amazing 17 year olds, seasoned startup experts, and a whole bunch of passionate folk. 

In one year we have consumed ridiculous amounts of coffee, talked startup with Alvy Ray Smith, community with Sam Altman and rocket ships with Scott Nolan. We have learnt stuff at Webstock, shared wisdom at GridAKL Conversations and talked luck with James Hurman
 

Been a while since you came to visit us? Or simply want to have a gander at what we have been up too? Head over to our blog, follow us on twitter or watch the video below - a tour of GridAKL as it was, as it is now and as it will be in the future. 

The year in review
