In 2014, Edward Woolley had the penny drop of construction plans in 3D and setup an augmented reality business. Ed comes from an Architectural background – constructions in 2D – and wanted to put his creativity and keen team play to a greater use.
But, Ed has realised over the years that the business is not scalable to a level he wanted it to be. And, despite healthy revenues, he has had to keep adding to his development team, a daunting managerial task in its own right.
