Adrian Lara Moreno (CTO) and Roman Sick (CEO) Robert Rieger
What inspired you to found your startup?
The idea was to create a sound system that can provide the most authentic and true audio signal to everyone in the audience, regardless of their position or distance from the speakers. For this, a technology needed to be created that was able to recreate real-world audio wave fronts.
How are you different? What is your unique value proposition?
Holoplot is the only manufacturer who provides a loudspeaker system that allows shaping any audio wave front in space. This gives greater control over audio, and more unconventional audio waves can be created. Volume loss over distance can be minimized, and strictly confined sound fields can be designed.
How do you define success for yourself and your company?
For us, success is setting a new standard in what people hear and experience in terms of audio.
What do you want to achieve next year?
Growing a great team further, executing amazing projects, and shaking the traditional markets.
Why do people want to work at your company?
Flat hierarchies, combined with full authority, a diverse and friendly team, plus a sexy product.
What has been the most important milestone so far?
Our partnership with the Madison Square Garden Company to bring sound to The Sphere, the most exciting and visionary new entertainment venue concept, opening in Las Vegas and London starting from 2020.
Looking back at your whole development story — what makes you most proud?
That we managed to turn our ideas into something that works and amazes the world!

Global market leader for delivering the best and most impressive audio solutions to the world.
