CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ventureprise, a regional public-private non-profit that supports the success of start-up and early-stage entrepreneurs and is affiliated with UNC Charlotte, announces today a new client-tenant agreement with ARiCON LLC.
ARiCON is a joint venture between CoroWare, Inc. (OTCQB: COWI), who is contributing mobile robotics development capabilities; and Lucas Snyder, a private investor who is contributing construction industry knowledge, expertise and customer relationships. They are developing small robot platforms (ARiBOT), applications and solutions for the construction industry.
"We chose Ventureprise at The Ben Craig Center as our start-up home because of their reputation as a substantive resource with a full range of facility and business advisory services for high tech, fast growth ventures," says Joe Daziel, ARiCON President. "We also recognize Ventureprise as the portal into UNC Charlotte for leveraging university resources, which are vital to our commercial success."
ARiCON will repurpose existing technology with its unique design to create the ARiBOT, which uses CAD/CAM architectural plans to precisely measure and mark for interior walls, plumbing, HVAC, etc. in new commercial construction significantly faster and with greater accuracy than today's tools.
"We are pleased ARiCON chose to start-up in Charlotte, and with Ventureprise, and are excited to assist with their growth," says Paul Wetenhall, Ventureprise President. "ARiCON's leaders understand the value Ventureprise provides through access to the right resources, advisory services, meaningful connections and receiving full benefits from the shared office resources available to all Ventureprise client-tenants to help accelerate their growth."
In addition to establishing ARiCON in Charlotte, CoroWare has also relocated its robotics design, development and manufacturing center to Ventureprise, located at The Ben Craig Center. CoroWare will continue to develop complementary robotics software technologies, develop cyber security and collaboration solutions and deliver its CoroCall Business Class HD Videoconferencing Service from its headquarter office in Kirkland, Washington and other locations across the United States.
