Poland Allocates $310,000 Grant to Ukrainian VR Startup

Ukrainian project "VRpartments", which deals with VR solutions for real estate, received a grant of $310,000 from the Polish incubator "Unicorn Hub"

According to Liza Khlopkova, founder of the startup, the team received a grant within the framework of the program for the development of new technologies and startups in the eastern region of Poland — Rozwój startupów w Polsce Wschodniej. After completing training at the Unicorn Hub incubator, which is part of the Platformy startowe dla nowych pomysłów program, the project received equity-free funding. The essence of such funding is that in exchange for money, the startup did not have to give a share in the amount of $310,000.

The essence of the project is that using the application, the user can first select an apartment, and then inspect it and walk around it in virtual reality. You can also equip an apartment in VR. To do this, the user will need a startup application on a smartphone and cardboard VR glasses. In fact, this technology can be called a virtual realtor.

Usually, when creating any innovation, the founder must first face a problem and create the solution that he will later make available to everyone. The same happened with Lisa: she bought an apartment with her parents and realized that this process is difficult and unpleasant, and it can simplify with technology. The team also includes CEO Dmitry Khlopkov, who founded his first startup at the age of 18, CTO Taras Gopko, who has experience in launching IT products on the Polish market, Lead Architekt & 3D-designer Igor Yavorsky.

It is worth noting that the money from the investment will go to technology development, as well as marketing and sales in Poland and the United States.
