For AR startups, regulatory compliance is a significant problem. The industry is still evolving, which means that laws and regulations around privacy, data protection, and user safety are still being developed. As a result, AR companies must navigate a complex and sometimes uncertain legal landscape to create and market their products.
AR startups face various risks, from tech and operational to legal and ethical. That’s why they need to integrate effective risk management practices to identify, assess, and mitigate risks associated with developing, implementing, and using AR solutions. Failure to do this may result in product malfunctions, legal issues, and financial instability.

WHO WE ARE
The AR industry is highly attractive to AR VCs. First, it’s an innovative and disruptive sector with huge market potential. Second, it has high margins and recurring revenues. So, investors see AR projects as a promising and increasingly profitable investment.
Securing funds may not be that easy. Yet, if AR startups demonstrate a clear vision of the market, have an expert team who can create impeccable AR solutions, and present a robust market entry strategy, their chances are getting much higher.
In most cases, our team needs two to three weeks to complete the project, yet the time frames may vary depending on our workload and the project’s difficulty. Thus, it’s better to discuss the time individually.
Many AR pitch decks fail to provide a compelling investment storyline. Plus, they don’t include information about why they chose exactly this market and exactly at this time period. Some presentations lack competition slides. This signals to investors that the startup lacks relevant information on the landscape to carve out a competitive advantage and become profitable.
The AR market is dynamic and highly competitive due to the abundance of market players, high consumer expectations, investment potential, and global reach.
