“We’re trying to change the way people create and consume content.  Whether that be people capturing moments, brands showcasing product, or creatives using the platform to do things we can’t even imagine just yet.  With our impending launch the more people who get to experience the app the better,” said VIEWPOP’s CEO, Peter Brennan.  “There’s power in 3D content, and once the right people start creating content in 3D, we feel that content creation will be reinvented.”

It is a grand opportunity for the Viewpop team to meet influential people in the tech world, and show their product to investors, mentors and journalists. Also it is a great opportunity to get feedback, and to learn how best to launch the app.
