As MOONHUB approaches its five year anniversary next week, we felt it was necessary to talk about our journey from August 2016 to now. We’ll be posting a video from the founders next week so you can hear a little more as we reflect on the past five years.
With the launch of the MOONHUB Suite, and our bespoke VR training work, we have on-boarded a good number of new clients, had a fair amount of press, and talked a LOT about the benefits of VR… But in doing so, we haven’t spoken a huge amount about who we are and our story.
How did MOONHUB come about?
MOONHUB was created back when the founding team averaged 22/23 years old, with us meeting each other at University or through mutual friends. We soon realised we had both the experience and desire to really make a difference in the world of training, and create content that would genuinely improve knowledge retention rates and improve the training experience as a whole… because let’s be honest, who thoroughly enjoys a classroom-based training experience.
The first two-three years we spent bootstrapping and undergoing market research to see whether organisations were ready to make the move from traditional training to immersive technologies; We set ourselves up with patent-pending technology, and created our first alpha demo system.
Our first pre-seed private investment round came through which enabled us to grow the team, move into a private office at Plexal, and expand our hardware to take on more development opportunities.
Let’s fast-forward a couple more years, and we are in the middle of a seed-investment round to further grow the team and develop our R&D (research & development); We’re onboarding companies both small and large, and MOONHUB’s journey could not be more exciting.
As always, we’ll keep you up to date with any updates, and we do have a monthly newsletter with podcasts/blogs/stories so just email us to be added to that: firstname.lastname@example.org
