Saganworks is an Ann Arbor, Michigan start-up founded by Donald Hicks, a serial software technology entrepreneur. In 1998, Don founded the supply chain design software company LLamasoft. In 2013, while making a last-minute visit to see the Rosetta Stone at the British Museum in London, he walked into the Gallery of Enlightenment only to realize that he had just five minutes until the museum closed. With such limited time to explore, Don wanted to purchase a memory stick of all the fantastic collections in the Gallery. No such luck. However, in those brief seconds, the idea germinated to create a 3D space to hold all its knowledge and collections.
On May 1st, Saganworks launched as a web and mobile application bringing the ability to create 3D galleries to the masses, and in October launched a new media type with their embeddable technology: 3D Immersive Experiences (3D-IE). Just 6 months after launch, Saganworks has almost 4,000 users across dozens of industries.
