Somnium Space Creators Fund: Batch 3

Shark Tank meets VR: Back in June this year, Somnium Space started the Creators Fund to further support and foster the creators community. Users can pitch their projects during live events in VR in Somnium Space before a panel of judges for a chance to get their project funded with up to $1000 in Somnium Cubes per month (for a 3 month period). Since June we saw two successful sessions – with some truly exciting projects – and last week it was already time for the third batch of this popular Creators Fund. On the shores of Deep Oasis Lake, in VR, a total of seven slightly nervous entrepreneurs pitched their projects in front of the judges and the enthusiastic audience.

The panel of judges consisted of Oly, Chris Bell, Artific and Artur Sychov, founder and CEO of Somnium Space.
