Let’s face it: while VR and immersive tech is great, it’s viability all comes down to dollars and cents. Great content and technology ideas are useless unless there are significant dollars behind them, and crowdfunding options like Kickstarter are not a sure thing for the would-be immersive-tech innovator.
The Immersed Industry Builders Panel is all about business and finance for VR, AR, 3D, and more. This panel features Martin Lord (Ontario Centres of Excellence), Mark Lawrence (Network of Angel Organizations – Ontario), Shelley Coultish (Canada Media Fund, Telefilm Canada), Mauricio Ospina, Government of Ontario’s Ministry of Citizenship, Immigration and International Trade, and Ana Serrano (Canadian Film Centre). If you are looking to raise capital for your new or existing business, this is a must-watch panel!
