The Glimpse Group aims to become a premier VR/AR Software & Services company, with a global footprint.

Highlights:

Early stake in the emerging VR/AR space that has a significant growth potential across industries.

Diversified portfolio of VR/AR start-ups in various industry verticals, with multiple monetization opportunities, significant IP, and a structure that mitigates risks and is not dependent on a single company’s success.

Highly-experienced management team with VR/AR domain expertise, deep connections within the VR/AR industry, and extensive technological, operational and financial experience.

Business and operations model that simplifies the multiple challenges faced by entrepreneurs in an early-stage industry, materially increasing the time allocated to core R&D and business development activities, while significantly cutting costs through shared infrastructure and synergies.

Potential for substantial and consistent cash returns to shareholders as companies are divested over time as they mature (in addition to a potential liquidity event of the Glimpse parent in the future).

8 of our 10 companies are already generating revenues; filed initial patents; 35 people
