Company focus : Content wise

We're a media company, with a mixed business model. Sometimes we create original, narrative content – which we then market directly to consumers (B2C). Other times, we’re commissioned to create branded content– in which case we are working directly with another business (B2B). Our key differentiator from our competitors is that we’re not dependent on our branded content to create our narrative pieces. We have the manpower, financial resources, and drive to pursue these simultaneously.

Company focus : Tech wise

We've developed proprietary software for internal use, as well as a rig to facilitate shooting.

Targeted countries

North America

Why your company is an investment opportunity ?

The virtual reality industry is currently lacking quality content. There are technical people who understand the capabilities of the medium but not the narrative aspect. And there storytellers who are very linear in their thinking and don’t quite understand how to exploit the technology. We are a hybrid of both of these kinds of people. The team running Future Lighthouse is well-versed in both cinema and the tech world and we’re bringing to the table revolutionary work that will change the way we perceive virtual reality.
