Around Media, a Ghent, Belgium-based real estate virtual reality startup, raised €1.25m in funding.
Investors included Wim Vernaeve.
The company intends to use the funds to expand into the Belgian construction market, and launch in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom in 2019.
Founded in 2015 by Pieter Van Hoorne, Wannes Vanspranghe and Arne Derynck, Around Media provides Prompto, a cloud platform for designers (including interior architects, 3D artists), developers and producers of construction materials to show customers how their future home will look like in virtual reality.
Adjusting the light, playing with colours, shifting furniture, Prompto allows users to set up spaces entirely and lets them walk around in them with customers.
The scale-up has a team of 35 employees.
