Whilst 2020 was a challenging year for everyone, I do not want to cast 2020 off without recognising and giving thanks to our employees, investors, partners and our first adopters of the ARX platform for what turned out to be an exceptional year here at ARX.
We closed our pre-seed investment in 2020 led by Denver based Blackhorn Ventures and New York based MuuS. Both saw the opportunity and recognised the growing dependency on digital and supply chain security which is becoming a key factor to enabling transitional technologies to be adopted and securely scale as the world accelerates to move towards more sustainable industries and processes. A further thanks to the other investors who joined the pre-seed round.
Thanks to the ARX team who have demonstrated exceptional commitment and a can-do attitude to deliver such high quality ahead of schedule. I personally appreciate that in our daily communications I only hear “how can we?” rather than “we can’t”.
We continue to recruit and search for exceptional talent to build on our existing team as we further develop the ARX platform and deliver to customers. V1.0 of the platform was released at the end of December 2020 and we are already looking forward to deploying V1.1 in March 2021.
I would like to extend a special thanks to Iceotope, David Craig (CEO) and Paul Coates (Head of Special projects) who became the first adopters of the ARX platform in 2020. Their early feedback has helped us refine our streamlined onboarding process paving the way for the companies that will be adopting ARX during Q1 of 2021 and beyond.
From the ARX team, wishing all of our friends and stakeholders a healthy and prosperous 2021.
