How Anarky Labs came to be

Founded in March 2020, Anarky Labs is a young and productive startup. Within 2 years Anarky Labs has already released their first own product, AirHUD and grown their team to ten people.

Hannu and Lassi, the founders, are both successful entrepreneurs, with a long experience in industrial design, virtual reality, and product development.  With clear vision of the product and the combined background of fearlessly creating new products starting from a clean board, the path was clear.

They got the HoloLens 2 in June 2020 and within only two months they already had the prototype flying! The progress after that has been phenomenal, making Anarky Labs a real revolutionary.

Anarky Labs was founded in Finland. But the first customers were outside of Finland. And the first employee did not speak Finnish very well… So pretty much from the beginning Anarky Labs was doing international business and employing international talents. Today, the team is composed of 10 seasoned professionals, coming from 5 different nationalities. Being international internally and externally has just always been a part of the company DNA and we want to keep it this way!

Anarky Labs’ vision is to create a product that benefits drone pilots but not only. We think augmented reality outdoors is at its premises and will be used for all kinds of purposes. Air taxis, air traffic management, building inspections… the possibilities are endless.
