SightCall: Visual Assistance Powered by AR and AI

Good ideas aren’t enough. That’s why any entrepreneur who asks a venture capitalist to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) is thrown into the amateur hour bucket. It’s why countless people have businesses that consist of a name, a logo, a website, and a domain name they keep renewing to assure themselves their side hustle will […]

The MicroVision Stock Forecast You’re Looking For

How Augmented Reality Fits into IoT Enterprise Solutions

Last year, we decided to add the German IoT company TeamViewer (TMV.F) to our Disruptive Tech Portfolio. It scratched all of the right itches – highly profitable with a 100% subscription model, crazy growth across different metrics, strong regional diversification, and foreign currency exposure. (It also doesn’t suffer from the ARK effect.) Its connectivity platform […]

Is Unity Software Stock the Best Way to Invest in VR?
