Ray Cantu, a San Antonio native who returned to his roots, and Eliot Gerstel, a newcomer from Los Angeles, found themselves at Geekdom, a coworking space and collaborative startup community that sparked the ignition of their creative partnership.

Ray initially used Geekdom’s coworking space for his real estate ventures, hoping that staying in the environment might trigger an innovative idea and was among the first to explore the prototype of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) tool. Eliot came into Geekdom with a strong marketing and writing background. Their diverse backgrounds and skills complemented one another perfectly, showcasing the essence of “Born at Geekdom.”
