We chat with Peter Rojas (@peterrojas), partner in betaworks ventures, about how his background as a serial entrepreneur and co-founder of Engadget and Gizmodo led him into the venture capital world. We talk about betaworks and their investing philosophy, the VR/AR companies in their portfolio (Against Gravity, Viro, and BOOM.TV), and why they have invested in them. We dig deep into the differences between venture capital and other sources of funding, Peter gives tangible advice to founders seeking capital, we talk about virtual reality headset sales numbers, and why perhaps we’re wrong about what makes for great VR - http://roj.as/

We talk with Zahra Rasool (@RXahra) all about Al Jazeera’s newly-announced immersive media studio, @ContrastVR. She gives us insight into how she’s thinking about immersive journalism plus a window into Al Jazeera’s two-pronged approach: producing a series of cinematic-quality 360 documentaries while building out the 360 production capabilities of their local brands around the world. Zahra tells us about the 360 doc series currently in production, and we also address how she’s thinking about distribution/subject matter differently depending on where the project falls on the spectrum of varying production quality - http://contrastvr.com/

This week we talk with @NathanBurba, co-founder & CEO of @Survios, for an in-person conversation at his company's headquarters in Los Angeles. Survios is well-known in the VR space for their highly-polished game, Raw Data, that set revenue records and grossed over $1M in the first month of its release on early access. Nathan shares with us more about Survios as a company, how he thinks about game design, innovative locomotion techniques deployed on their Sprint Vector title (currently in development), and how the Raw Data world is expanding and what we can look forward to in the next release of the sci-fi game. We also chat about why Survios has raised almost $55M in funding, how MGM (one of their lead investors) might influence their strategy, and discuss the importance of location-based activations - https://survios.com/

We talk with Katrina Semmes, co-founder of Dali17, about the full reconstruction of the real-life Dali17 Museum in Monterey, CA into a virtual reality experience. Katrina talks about why virtual reality museum tours are important and who can benefit, as well as why surrealism in general and Salvador Dali’s works in particular are naturally brought to life with VR. Available now on Steam under “Dali 17 VR Museum Tours,” this is the first full-scale, 1:1 accurate recreation of an real-world permanent museum in virtual reality - http://www.dali17.com/
