About Pulse on VR: A Workflow and Ecosystem Study

Co-authored by CFC Media Lab and OMERS Ventures, in collaboration with Nordicity, this workflow and ecosystem study focused on the Virtual Reality (VR) ecosystem in Canada will consist of VR startup survey research as well as case study interviews.  Research results will be shared with the industry to help it grow and to shed light on the enormous market potential of the emerging VR industry.
