Belgian startup Around Media has raised €1.25 million from Green Park Investment Partners for its VR platform Prompto aimed at the real estate industry. The main idea behind Prompto is that it allows different professionals — designers, property developers, and construction material producers — to work together on a virtual representation of an interior.
Running on Unreal Engine, same as Fortnite and hundreds of other games, Prompto allows real estate companies to design the interiors of future houses and give VR tours to the customers. The tours can also be exported from the platform for the clients to take them home.
Currently, Around Media promotes Prompto on the Belgian market and plans to launch it in the Netherlands and the UK in 2019.
