Saul Garlick

Where do you currently work?
Fabric

Co-Founder & Co-CEO

In which city (or cities) is your company located?
Los Angeles and Israel

In what year was your company founded?
2018

Describe the company you work for and its product/mission.
We launched Fabric to create a world where everyone belongs. Aware that in today’s digital world we are more interconnected than ever before while also being more disconnected socially, we knew we had to leverage technology to bring people together in real life. We ended up inventing an embeddable SDK that delivers local peer-to-peer connections in augmented reality. We work with consumer app companies to help them localize and connect their community through this new medium of communication. You can watch a fun clip here to see how one client is using Fabric.

Why is your company a member of TAO?
It’s clear that TAO is a leader in bringing together the technology community, and we wanted to join a great organization that is working with tech companies of all sizes and stages. While we are based outside of Oregon, in this virtual world we can easily learn from and work with people anywhere. Fabric is excited to learn from the Oregon tech community and contribute in any way we can.

What do you, personally, like best about being a TAO member? 
So far, it’s the team at TAO and the other members that we’ve been introduced to that have made membership so positive. I am so impressed with Skip and the entire team. They are all such a pleasure to work with.

What’s your favorite thing about our region’s tech ecosystem?
We really like how the Oregon tech ecosystem thinks about and builds community. We have spoken with other members from very different parts of the tech ecosystem and consistently the ethos has been about nurturing healthy relationships with cities, companies and end-users. It’s a great culture!

What is your hope for the future of tech in Oregon & SW Washington? 
Our hope is that Oregon and SW Washington continue to grow incredible companies but never lose the cultural magic that makes the companies in the region so human-centric and fundamentally positive for society.
