Off the heels of what the company calls its “successful showing” at the Facebook Developer Conference, Vizor, a pioneering virtual reality software company, has just announced it has raised $2.3 million in a seed funding round led by The Venture Reality Fund (The VR Fund) and co-led by Inventure.
According to a release to media, the company also announced the private beta launch of its VR creation and hosting platform, which allows users to effortlessly produce 360-degree tours, stories and WebVR experiences by simply dragging and dropping media components.
Focused on advancing the future of virtual reality content on the web, Vizor will utilize the funds to enhance the development and functionality of its platform, which helps lower the barrier to entry for both VR content creation and consumption.
“Immersive web is the next iteration of the internet, and our goal is to make it as seamless as possible for businesses and storytellers to fill the world with new, inspiring and beautiful virtual reality content,” said Kaarlo Kananen, founder and CEO of Vizor. “Our investors understand the value in evolving our platform and the limitless creative possibilities it can unlock.”
