Kenzan Studios, a Geneva, Switzerland-based virtual reality developer, raised CHF5m Series A funding.
The round was led by InvestVR, through the InvestVR global investor network, with participation from two Swiss technology investors.
The company will use the funds to expand its 30 person in-house development team, further develop its original VR IP, and conduct further R&D into immersive technologies.
Founded in 2006 by Pascal Conicella, Director Creative Thinking, and led by CEO Ronny Tobler, Kenzan Studios leverages an in-house team of more than 30 creative directors, visual artists, animators and developers to deliver complete original virtual reality environments and characters, along with animations, visual effects and dedicated user interfaces.
The company recently announced its Virtual Reality Time Machine, an original interactive VR experience created for customer DuPont Performance Materials, which added to a VR experience partnership with Coop, the largest retail chain in Switzerland. Customers also include Omega, LVMH brands and Timex, among others.
