Testimonials:

“It has been an amazing time at AXIS. They’re building a suite of connected devices that are designed to save energy, primarily in the commercial sector. The technology we are creating automates window shades in commercial buildings and has been proven to significantly reduce energy consumption. It blocks out the solar heat gained during sunny weather, while harvesting natural daylight during overcast weather. I’m very proud to be a part of this process.” – Tung Huu Le, Science Graduate
