Cognitive3D Raises $2.5M in Seed Funding


Cognitive3D, a Vancouver, Canada-based spatial analytics platform that measures how users behave within 3D environments, raised a $2.5M Seed funding round.

The round was led by Konvoy, with participation from Space Capital and Boost VC.  

The company, which has built a team of nine, all based in Canada, plans to use the funds to double the headcount over the next 18 months.

Founded in 2015 by CEO Tony Bevilacqua, Cognitive3D provides a spatial analytics platform that collates and measures how users behave within immersive 3D environments. The system uses immersive technology to help provide an innovative way of researching consumer behavior within a 3D extended reality (XR) setting. As users move from content consumption through 2D web and mobile platforms, towards a more interactive content participation in 3D apps, Cognitive3D provides the ability to understand what happens within a 3D space, including how users interact with objects in the chosen environment.  

Jim Preston, Lead Technical Producer at Electronic Arts (EA), with over 20 years of experience in frontier technology and video games, and Konvoy Principal Taylor Hurst will be joining Cognitive3D’s board.
