Overview

AmazeVR is a VR concert platform company that brings artists closer to fans anywhere at any time through proprietary immersive technologies. Through our full-service solution, fans come face-to-face with their favorite artists in a virtual experience through integrating the artist’s performance in 8K+ stereoscopic live-action videos into surreal environments that transcend reality. Our vertically integrated distribution model optimizes for quality and reach — offline, through global movie theaters and VR LBEs; and online, through the Amaze app across most major VR headsets and other opportunities.
Founded by the co-founder and early executives of Kakao, a $32B market cap mobile platform company, AmazeVR has offices in Los Angeles (HQ) and Seoul. In 2019, we closed a $9.5MM Series A round of fundraising with seasoned investors in the tech and media space. Since then, we’ve built our Unreal Engine-based technical foundation, began our collaboration with Megan Thee Stallion and Roc Nation and secured an additional $15MM to build the future of music.
We’re thrilled to be building Amaze VR Concerts with an incredibly talented and passionate team, and we can’t wait to launch our first project with Megan Thee Stallion across the US in 2022, followed by more global projects. We’re searching for a world-class teammate with music and entertainment brand partnership experience. Let's build the future of music together.
