VR Investor and developer Tipatat Chennavasin, GP for The VR Fund joins us to talk about how far we've come over the past 2.5 years of consumer VR.

Topics discussed:

  • Jumping from development to venture capital
  • Which businesses need VC investment, and which don't
  • How media hype overvalued VR companies

Key takeaways:

  • Right now is the BEST time to be investing and developing in VR, with no real AAA competition, no overinflated hype, with a growing and hungry for content userbase.
  • Plenty of business models than don't need venture capital to be successful
  • You're better off prototyping AR apps in VR than on mobile AR today
