Charles Burr and Jerry Krylov, the creators of wearable boxing technology that was used by Team GB, have decided to move on from the start-up incubator into their own HQ in the centre of Manchester.
The technology, called the Corner, is a wearable tracker designed to help boxers focus their training and hit their goals faster. Some of the individuals who have been involved in testing the tracker include British World Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua, super-middleweight champion Callum Smith and Manchester-born boxing coach Joe Gallagher.
Jerry Krylov, co-founder of Corner said: “I remember day one. For the first time we had two desks together and we could really set to work developing the product. It was a strange feeling but it was the best move we made.
“The team at The Landing believed in us and were always looking out for us. They really understood what we were trying to achieve. They provided the user testing labs as well as the connections, investment and training opportunities.
"It’s been a phenomenal journey and we’re so excited to be ready to move on to our very own HQ.
“We have achieved so much in the last three years and the future is really exciting. We also have lots of plans for developing the product further and for building our new HQ, which will incorporate a gym and a professional boxing ring where we can test the product as we develop it.
"We’ll also have a creative co-working space and photographic studio for other creative start-ups to use.”
