On January 1, 2020, six months after founding our company, we moved into our first exclusive Peerox office. After hiring the first Peers in October and December 2019, we needed a domicile where we could work together. We found what we were looking for at RoboLab, the startup hub of Robotron Datenbank-Software GmbH in Dresden. There, in a 51m² furnished office, we found an ideal home for our now 7-Peer team. At up to 10 workstations, we can work together in an innovative, creative atmosphere to bring our vision and our MADDOX forward and on the road.
The RoboLab is located within walking distance of our parent institute, the Fraunhofer IVV Dresden. There, our colleagues work intensively in various research projects on innovative technologies of the future. The trusting and close cooperation with our colleagues is still very important to us. That is why we regularly sit together, discuss the work involved in our different projects with each other, and exchange contacts. This enables us to build up a large joint network and to address forward-looking research questions, as well as to provide concrete support in the short term. The spatial proximity greatly facilitates this cooperation.
Needless to say, it is important for our Peerox team to move from decentralized, remote-based work to a shared daily routine. As a result, we can now make decisions, share ideas, and discuss them much more efficiently.
