Envelop VR, creates virtual reality (VR) experiences through its Envelop Virtual Environment (EVE) platform to enhance business productivity. In January the company announced that it has raised around $5.5 million USD through a Series A round of funding. Now the firm has revealed the hiring of a new Vice President of Business Development.
The software company has recruited Jeff Hansen, who’s primary role will be to engage with enterprise customers wanting to solve for business challenges by utilizing a VR environment. Hansen brings more than 20 years of experience bringing products to market. He’s authored alliance or licensing deals with some of the biggest brands and consulted at the C-level for dozens of enterprise clients.
“Nothing compares to the potential of immersive computing and the VR experience,” said Hansen in a statement. “It is game changing – a true inflection point like the PC, Internet, HD or digital photography. Even more exciting is the opportunity to help enterprise customers solve real business problems in VR.”
EVE allows people to carry out normal work activities on a virtual computer, now enhanced with VR functionality such as showing multiple windows at a time and being able to move them to any position within the environment.
“Envelop’s software allows enterprise companies to seamlessly transition into virtual reality because it gives them the platform to use their current computing functionalities and existing applications, but with the additional benefits that will allow those tools and data sources to perform at an optimum level,” said Roy Taylor, AMD’s Corporate Vice President of Content & Alliances, Radeon Technology Group. “This will significantly help solve a number of work flow and business challenges for a number of companies in a variety of industries.”
