Combining 3D environments and live video can have nice effects! Create immersive events, where people can walk en interact in breakout rooms, even when used as a flat”-stream in Zoom, Teams, Hangouts etc. It increases the feeling of presence.

As an example you’ll find our “practice what your preach” behind the scenes video below. Our live stream for VIVAT.

All of this can be easily configured in our Experience builder. Create slides and enrich them with 360 videos, 3D objects, sounds/music, avatar interactions and more.

Interview Silicon Canal with female co-founder CoVince


7 successful female founders share their best tips on launching a tech startup

Silicon Canals: “With International Women’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to shine the spotlight on some female founders currently making massive waves. These 7 female founders managed to secure a spot in the top 10 of the Blue Tulip Awards. This competition is a year-round programme aiming to accelerate and drive breakthrough innovation. We asked them about their innovation, how they got into the game and what their advice is for others that want to succeed.”

Co-Founder Melanie van Halteren shares her tips for starting a tech company: “Nowadays we have the possibility to create a better world together using new technologies. CoVince founder Melanie van Halteren thinks today’s challenges are no longer exclusive to one region or country. Instead we are all equally responsible for becoming a part of the solution. That’s why she started her distribution and content creation platform with configurable VR, AR, AI and mobile-building blocks. I’m convinced that emerging technologies can help us achieve a better world but I experienced that even today it’s only available for a select group. I want to bridge the gap and make learning with immersive technologies accessible and affordable for everyone. For small businesses, the self-employed, corporations, young, old, rich, poor, physically or mentally healthy or challenged. With CoVince I really think we can accelerate people’s development by making it fun and effective.

To achieve success in the startup world, she wants female founders to not let existing structures and visions stop them. “You can always create your own role and add your own value. Create collaborations between people, expertise and tech. If you feel responsible for other people’s business as if it were your own, you’ll act accordingly and create valuable collaborations. Finally, listen to each other with attention and respect, but don’t get distracted by all the advice you get. Stay determined and follow your own path.”

Top 10 innovations of Education


Made it to the top 10 Blue Tulip Awards

CoVince is selected as one of the Top 10 innovations of Education!

Blue Tulip Awards: “Introducing the Top 10 innovations! After exciting speed-dating sessions at Amsterdome, the jury narrowed down the number of innovations to our Top 10 who are ready to join the Semifinals.”

“The nature and structure of work is changing. Emerging technologies necessitate changes in both workforce and education to prepare for a radically different future. 65 percent of children starting school today will have jobs that don’t exist yet. Leading businesses need to reshape the nature of work to create new forms of value and scale up ‘new skilling’. New education system is needed to help gain versatile skills that can’t be automated – creativity, emotional intelligence, critical thinking, ethics, and lifelong learning.”

CoVince has been selected as one of the Top 10 innovations of Education. This achievement means we are one step closer to becoming the winner of Blue Tulip Awards 2020.
