After enjoying lakeside views in humble Teralba for three years, Anditi has joined the Eighteen04 residents. The team of 18 is taking up occupancy on Level 3 of the former Great Northern Brewery building.
The new space allows Anditi to continue to grow, and it grants connection to Newcastle’s high-speed internet network. However, most importantly, the move offers the opportunity to collaborate with some of the best innovative, clean technology minds in Newcastle; SwitchDin, Fernlawn Environmental and Newie Ventures.
Managing Director of Anditi, Peter Jaimeson said the move has allowed more space to work with others to make a difference to Newcastle’s community.
“In the past we’ve had a system where it’s the first to cross the line or the last one standing is the only one that wins,” Peter said.
“But that’s wasteful. If we can get to where we get many across the line through collaboration, then as community we’ll reduce our footprint enormously and will have a much better, much faster development rate and get to a smart city a lot quicker.”
Teaming up with Dr Andrew Mears, CEO SwitchDin, the pair were asked what the aim of the innovation hub at Eighteen04 is.
“It’s a case of one plus one equals three. This is about leveraging our individual comparative advantages to really take on global markets. And that’s the goal here,” Andrew said.
Peter said Anditi’s move is also a part of the bigger picture.
“It’s a part of Newcastle and the Hunter region’s future. Newcastle is moving away from the traditional incumbent sectors, of resources and logistics towards renewable energy and clean technology,” Peter said.
“Initiatives like the Innovation Hub at Eighteen04 provide exciting opportunities to keep graduates within Newcastle, while it also attracts new talent from Australian capital cities, and overseas.”
Anditi has expanded from sixemployees to 18 over the past 12 months, with projection to grow more by the end of 2019.
Gaining significant traction on a national and international stage, Anditi offers both off the shelf analytics products to Australian businesses, as well as custom-built innovative solutions for big corporations internationally.
