What do you know about VR and AR? To some, these will just be initials, but to many, they are the future!
As part of our entrepreneurs programme, we recently hosted two fascinating guest speakers who talked about this fast-moving innovation and how it will impact our lives. The technology already exists, whether it’s enabling our mobile devices to recognise products and other objects in the physical world, or training surgeons in complex procedures.
Addressing the topics of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) and how these technologies are rapidly expanding into big business, Steve Dann, founder and CEO of Amplified Robot spoke about the possibilities it will present for innovative entrepreneurs.

Our other speaker, Jess Butcher, co-founder and director of Blippar, discussed the multiple applications of AR, a term that more of us are hearing an increasing amount about. As a successful and valuable scale-up business, Blippar is at the forefront of a fast-developing industry. To read more about AR and the challenges of scaling up, click below.
Talking about scale-ups, as leading corporate supporters of the Scale-Up Institute, we would value your contribution to take part in its latest survey of British business. The survey aims to find out what matters most to businesses on their scale up journey, and what support they need from the private and public sectors to grow. The survey closes on 2 October, so to share your views, follow this link.
And finally, we will be hosting a scale-up masterclass in London on 24 November. The event will feature actionable insights on how to scale up your business. If you are interested in attending, please click here.
