Virtuix

Join Founder and CEO Jan Goetgeluk as he shares the Virtuix Omni experience. Founded in April 2013, Virtuix was one of the pioneers of the recent wave of Virtual Reality (“VR”) innovation. The Omni enables players to explore endless VR worlds, moving freely and at full speed in 360° without hitting any walls. Movements that would otherwise require unintuitive button presses are now the result of natural motion – simply walk, run, and turn in 360° in virtual reality games and applications!

“I am thrilled to be a recurring investor in Virtuix, a company by a former student and Rice Business School alum that is now a global leader in the virtual reality space with top-tier investor backing and a revolutionary product. Jan and his team were able to solve a big technological problem and build a successful business with profitable fundamentals and rapid worldwide growth. The Omni's potential is massive with many applications beyond gaming. I am excited to continue to support Jan and be part of the next phase of Virtuix's story.”

- Al Napier, Professor Emeritus of Entrepreneurship and Psychology at Rice University

Virtuix is currently accepting investmentest through SeedInvest.
