Founded by the co-founder and early executives of Kakao, a $32B market cap mobile platform company, AmazeVR has offices in Los Angeles (HQ) and Seoul. And we secured $9.5MM for our Series A fundraising in 2019 from seasoned investors in the tech and media space. In 2020, after we built our Unreal Engine-based technical foundation collaborating with artist duo Ceraadi and Roc Nation, we secured an additional $9.5MM to build the future of music.
