With promising opportunities in VR come significant challenges to overcome.
Without clear standards and metrics, evaluating a business in a booming VR sector can be complex and time-consuming. VR tech is developing fast, and its integration within diverse content types makes it hard to assess the effectiveness of VR products and user engagement. All this may affect the fundraising process and lead to possible missteps in market positioning.
Raising funds for VR startups means adapting to the constantly changing investment landscape. Yet, with a visually rich and insightful pitch deck, their chances are rising. As it’s pivotal to present a persuasive investment narrative that aligns with the current industry trends. Thus, a VR pitch deck should highlight the efficient use of capital (like lean operation models or cost-effective VR content production) and strong market entry strategies.
The novelty of VR technology, high hardware costs, and lack of consumer awareness… All this makes it challenging to build a strong customer base. Plus, VR is still considered an experimental technology. That’s why traditional marketing strategies may not always work or are less effective.
From diligent business analysis to storytelling and financial forecasts, we’re helping founders crystallize and structure key business fundamentals and translate them into a compelling investment opportunity wrapped in a winning VR pitch deck.
Evaluating potential investments, conducting thorough due diligence, and supporting portfolio companies on their new fundraising rounds.

WHO WE ARE
The VR industry is highly attractive to investors due to several reasons. The market is developing fast, consumer interest is increasing, and numerous applications across various industries (like gaming, real estate, education, healthcare, etc.) are being created.
It may be rather hard to attract the necessary funding for a VR startup now. It’s due to the possible technological risks. Investors are hesitant because VR solutions may become obsolete very fast. Plus, content risks as the VR industry rests on high-quality content and experiences.
In most cases, we finish the materials in two to three weeks, a maximum of a month. But it all depends on the number of tasks we tackle at the moment and the complexity of the project itself.
Many VR pitch decks lack a coherent investment narrative and appealing intro. Showing only graphs, numbers, and charts to investors is not the best option, as the new ventures must attract attention rather than make VCs feel bored. Also, some pitch decks don’t answer the pivotal questions: ‘Why now?’ and ‘What’s your vision/mission?’
The competition in the VR market is fierce—over 2K startups and numerous industry leaders like Meta, Microsoft, and Apple are vying for a larger market share.
