Since we started in Aerion 2008 our WHY has evolved and it continues to drive our business and our culture today.
Aerion Technologies was founded by Andrew Romeo & Anthony Sapountzis while in their final year of university. Our founders were young, naive, had zero business experience, and a lot to learn.
Our first client was VSSEC (Victorian Space Science and Education Centre) in Strathmore, Melbourne. The first project was a simulation game to help year 9-10 students to keep astronauts alive on the mars surface.
We had a lot of fun, made lots of mistakes, and went way over the budget.
Given all the mistakes we made, we still loved every minute; the problem solving, learning process, and the best of all the smile on the faces of students when they engaged with the platform.
Mission to Mars is still in operation today, and has educated over 50,000 Victorian students.
