A glass ceiling is a metaphor for an unacknowledged barrier to advancement in a profession. You can see all the amazing opportunies above you, as the ceiling is transparent! Yet all the effort to break through ends rather pitying. On this show we discuss with Sean Whitmore who is a Senior Analyst at "Greenlight VR" and with NiMA Asghari who is the Founder of "Caspian Robotics" the glass ceiling in European virtual reality ecosystem. While Greenlight VR is is a company providing market intelligence for the global virtual reality economy but based in the USA, NiMA experienced the hustle with finding inverstment in Europe himself! Together we try to find the roots leading to the glass ceiling, the negative effects it creates but also the benefits.
