Bigscreen, a Berkeley, California-based virtual reality startup, secured $3m in funding.
The round was led by Andreessen Horowitz with participation from True Ventures, Presence Capital, Ludlow Ventures, David Bettner and SV Angel.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate the development plan by building a small core team.
Founded in 2014 by Darshan Shankar, CEO, Bigscreen creates a virtual reality telepresence platform for people to work, play, hangout, and collaborate.
Use cases include both entertainment and productivity. It’s used as a virtual living room to watch movies, play videogames, browse the web, and hangout with friends.
Available for Ocuslus and Steam, Bigscreen is also used for productivity as a tool for remote teams to collaborate together in virtual offices.
