The NUBIGON Story

Our Founding

Long-time friends Murat Arikan, a doctoral student at the Vienna University of Technology and Can Turgay, an experienced VFX artist, begin to explore the commercial potential of using photos and laser scanner data to automatically generate 3D environments. As Murat's research on computer graphics and algorithms gets published in renowned peer-reviewed journals, they start working on an innovative way of visualizing point clouds derived from photos and laser scanner data.

Incubation, Company Formation, and Seed Investment

Bert Azizoglu joins the team as the founding business developer. Our initiative gets accepted to the incubator of the Teknopark Istanbul Research Park as well as the incubator of accent Gruenderservice GmbH in Austria. Soon thereafter, we receive a seed-round investment from the Netherlands-based Diffusion Capital Fund Cooperatief U.A. (DCF). This allows us to build our company and accelerate our R&D efforts.

From Prototype to Product and HQ Move to the US

We start developing prototypes and test them with pilot projects. Close collaborations with these first users help us to fine-tune the feature set towards the needs and desires of the architecture, engineering and construction industries (AEC). In the second half of 2018, we move our HQ to the US and establish a presence in Austin and New York City. In January 2019, we release our Minimum Viable Product (MVP).

To Infinity and Beyond!

Right off the get-go, our software garners the attention of many industry players and prospects allowing us to build two distinct go-to-market pipelines consisting of entreprise software subscriptions and bundled software solutions. Our quarterly release schedule helps us quickly incorporate incoming feedback and expand the feature-set while our aggressive marketing and sales efforts allow us to reach a growing audience. Emerging international distributor partnerships help us support our users from over 38 countries.
