Tetragon's founders

About Us

Tetragon is an Austrian working group which started at TU Wien (Vienna University of Technology). Our mission is to improve the lives of people with visual impairments by developing innovative technology. From 2018 to 2020 the project was funded by an FFG program called Spin-off Fellowship, which sets the goal to found a spin-off company.
