Our team of world-class thinkers and creators were brought together by the shared vision of accelerating the display technology ecosystem.

We invest heavily in groundbreaking research and development that is evolving the industry.


VividQ is a deep tech software company with world-leading expertise in 3D holography. Our expert engineers, mathematicians and computer scientists out of the Universities of Cambridge, Oxford and St Andrews have solved key technology barriers in the adoption of holographic display for mass commercial application.

VividQ offers patented software to enable mass adoption of holographic display in AR/VR headsets and smartglasses, automotive head-up displays, and consumer electronics.

To date, VividQ has grown its Commercial and Technical teams in Cambridge and London, made a full release of the software framework, and established the holographic display ecosystem with manufacturers in the US, Taiwan and Europe. 


VividQ is led by a vibrant management team with decades of technical and corporate experience.

Our team members have been recognised by scientific, technology and business communities and regularly contribute to industry conferences and events.

Their perspectives and skills are combined in the core vision to bring advanced holographic display into the mass commercial market and power the future of display.

Darran Milne
Co-founder and CEO

Darran’s extensive experience in commercialising software products has been key to VividQ’s rapid growth.

A Mathematician and Theoretical Physicist by training, Darran pivoted from academia to become a leading analyst at a large financial software company. There he led new development initiatives and managed client implementation projects.

As one of the co-founders of VividQ and its former CTO, he directed the original research and development efforts and initiated partner collaborations. As CEO, he heads the company’s technical and commercial strategies, establishing VividQ as the underlying software provider for holographic display.

Darran holds a PhD in quantum information theory and quantum optics from the University of St Andrews and the Max Plank Institute.

Aleksandra Pedraszewska
Co-founder and COO

Aleksandra is a certified project manager and a graduate of Cambridge Judge Business School. Before joining VividQ’s founding team, she gained professional experience at Rolls-Royce, HBO, and an investment fund IdeaLab Ventures.

At VividQ, Aleks established the company’s commercial office in London. Today, she leads the sales and marketing efforts and manages day to day operations. She focuses on taking VividQ’s software to the market with pioneering hardware manufacturers and chipmakers, and on maintaining investor relations.

She was named on the ”25 under 25″ lists by Forbes & McKinsey, and London Tech London Advocates and won the WinTechSeries “Rising Star” award in 2019.

Dr Andrzej Kaczorowski
Co-founder and CTO

Andrzej has an interdisciplinary scientific background. He holds a PhD and MRes in Photonics Systems Development from the University of Cambridge and a BSc in Physics and Computer Science from King’s College London.

His near decade of research experience in the field of holography laid the foundations of VividQ’s technology. Andrzej led proof of principle work which resulted in VividQ’s core algorithm and the patent submission. These findings established VividQ’s efficient algorithms enabling real-time hologram generation.

Andrzej has published several papers on holography and is a frequent speaker at academic and popular science conferences and events. He has spoken at EPIC, Science. Polish Perspectives and TEDxWarsaw amongst others.

Tom Durrant
Co-founder and Head of Development

Tom oversees product development and delivery, with the aim of bringing holography to ubiquitous commercial application. His work on real-time hologram generation procedures ranges from low-level algorithm development to architecture and data pipelines.

Tom is a graduate of the University of Cambridge with a masters in Mathematics and Foundations of Computer Science with Distinction from the University of Oxford. He has development experience from Roke Manor Research and HP Autonomy, and has been a supervisor of computational projects at the University of Cambridge.

He continues to steer the development team toward innovative, agile practices, facilitating the integration of new research ideas generated at VividQ into well engineered software products.
