Incorporation & First Investment
April 2018: Marios and Anninos decided to move from theory to practice and back on April 2018 decided to incorporate Parametricos in Cyprus, where they started working intensively and operating towards bringing Parametricos idea into life. By the same period, they managed to secure an initial investment, which help them to fill the software developer role to Parametricos team.
The name Parametricos has a double meaning, it derives from Parametric Design where the architect and his client set parameters to drive the architectural design. The second meaning is associated with Operating Systems and thus the ending of the name. Parametric Operating Systems - Parametric[OS].
February 2018: Parametricos idea borne by the mid-2017 and during Marios' master thesis at the Politecnico di Milano. His thesis has theories not only from the architectural design and collaboration in the design process, but also includes aspects from economics and global awareness in architectural design and social theories elements. Discussing his theory and work with Anninos, they realised that their share a common perception and values of how the architectural industry can improve its workflow, and this is where their collaboration started. They set an official start date on February 2018 where they started bootstrapping the idea into actions.
