Startup Business Name: Roomkey.co
Tagline: The Metaverse for virtual events
Founder/Founders: Don Stein
When was your startup founded? 2018
In a few sentences, tell us what your start-up is all about:
Roomkey is the Metaverse for virtual events where users attend mixers with their community members across the globe. Our experience feels like The Sims (or Fortnite) for virtual events. Encourage you to try it out by creating a free room and hosting an event!
Let us know a bit about your team, who are the key team members and what is their role?
My name is Don (LinkedIn / Twitter). I was hosting Meetup events in San Francisco from 2015-2018 for VR/AR founders. It became really clear the value of events is the ability to meet others in the audience and have those MOMENTS OF SERENDIPITY.
We’re bringing this back with Roomkey.co, where you set up a private or public room for you and your friends, turn all of yourselves into 3D avatars, and then converse in the room just like at a real event.
Well, kinda 🙂
Except now each person in the room has a floating hologram of their name above their head, and a social profile associated with their avatar when you click on their character. This means anyone you meet at virtual events from now on, can be someone you stay connected with forever.
The reason community organisers like myself host events is to help the audience meet others in the audience who can make an impact on their life or work. This app was built out of that mission and recreating that feeling in our world.
If I can do ANYTHING to help, let me know on LinkedIn or email [email protected].
