After piloting its technology with the U.S. Air Force, Madison virtual reality startup Holos is now building a platform to help users easily build and sell VR courses for everything from yoga classes to archeology lessons.
The startup is looking to shake up the online courses industry, which includes California-based companies like Udemy Inc. and Coursera Inc. (NYSE: COUR). The no-code Holos platform would allow users to create immersive VR experiences without technical expertise.
Holos recently raised nearly $600,000 in seed funding via a simple agreement for future equity (SAFE) from angel investors including Tundra Angels of Green Bay. It’s in the process of raising another $2.5 million in a second seed round that will be priced, or based on the startup’s valuation, according to a Holos email update last month.
