This week’s episode is a live recording from the panel discussion at VRScout’s most recent monthly mixer, which addressed the topic of Investing in VR. We chat all about how investors are thinking about the VR/AR industry, as well as insight from funded VR/AR companies about their journey to secure financing. From the VR/AR side of things we have Nancy Bennett (CCO & GM of Two Bit Circus), Gil Baron (CEO of Mindshow), and Ikrima Elhassan (co-founder of Kite & Lightning). From the investor perspective we have Peter Rojas (who founded Engadget and Gizmodo and is investor at Betaworks), and Amanda Robson (investor at Norwest Partners which was founded in 1961 and is an investment firm with approximately $5 billion in capital). We also chat a bit about Women in XR, which is a fund and initiative connecting female founders and leaders to capital, resources, and each other. Sign up at: www.womenxr.com
