Was fortunate enough to get in as a Volunteer pass for this year’s SVVR Convention (thanks Brian!! owe ya one) so decided make the best use of this really grand opportunity. I seized the chance to network and reach out to as many people as I could, to let them know that ‘Hey we exist, and we are serious Indie content developers.’
Over the 2 days, I took our very recently completed VR app experience –InnovoxVR– with me in hand, and walked the convention floors, asking for anyone interested to try out our app and share their thoughts. The comments were overwhelmingly positive. Some memorable comments like “Why did it have to end?!” “Wish I could stay in that space forever” “My perfect way to relax and getaway from a hectic day of work” “Just beautiful.” “I saw God.” “What a different VR approach.” “Ecstasy.” One said with teary-eyes “So beautiful and emotional, it really got me.” I got the amazing chance to have people from big companies like Epic games, BMW, Playstation, Samsung, including a Venture company (and more!!) to demo the app and they all too responded really positively! “I’m an Indie developer, bootstrapped and can’t afford to have a exhibit booth, so instead here’s me taking our work to you!” “He’s a hustler..!” “Just ******** do it!”
For Day 2 I decided I just had to capture these moments, so I did bring a camera (I don’t have a phone camera since the VR demo I’m showing uses the phone to play lol)… so here’s some photo proof! Personally, it was unnerving and a big challenge to muster up enough courage to walk up to these guys and personally ask them to take a moment to check out our app, but hey, it was so worth it. 😀 And should there be another chance to scour conventions like that again, there’s definitely a few things I wish and would have done differently and better. So exhausting but if this is what it takes to grow from a Wantrepreneur into an Entrepreneur, then it’s all totally worth it. Of course, this entire experience would not have been possible without the support of some superbly amazing friends I’ve been so fortunate to have, so thank you really Elizabeth Zharoff, Keith Kaisershot, Brian S Huqueriza. And to everyone else that have also shown support, thank you! Pushing onward now! 😀 😀 😉
