Digi-Capital launches AR/VR/XR Analytics Platform

July 23, 2018

Digi-Capital has launched its Analytics Platform as the new AR/VR/XR industry dashboard for startups, corporates and VCs. It helps you to know everything in AR/VR/XR, with 500,000+ data points across hardware, software, platforms, products/services, business models, categories and countries. It also covers the leading AR/VR/XR startups, founders, corporates, VCs, valuations, dealflow and relationships by category, investment stage, deal size, country and region.

You can see it in action here.

The platform was soft-launched at a private event at Google in late May, after which ex-Piper Jaffray Apple Analyst (now Loup Ventures Managing Partner) Gene Munster said “Digi-Capital’s Analytics Platform is Bloomberg for AR/VR/XR – it’s beyond comprehensive.” Subscriptions from the soft-launch alone have taken the platform into profit even before it launched this week.

Digi-Capital Managing Director Tim Merel said, “Data/analytics to support the industry have largely come from industry reports so far (including our own), but tools equivalent to Bloomberg, AppAnnie or Pitchbook hadn’t emerged. So we made Digi-Capital’s Analytics Platform for AR/VR/XR professionals to answer question in minutes that would take them weeks, without the cost of doing it themselves. Some of the questions it helps to answer include:

CEO/CSO

  • Who are my competitors, and what are they doing?
  • Where and how could I make the most money?
  • Which platforms could deliver the best return on investment?
  • Who can I raise money from, and how can I get to them?
  • What is my company worth?

Product/service

  • What products and services am I competing with?
  • What products and services should I build?
  • Which platforms are critical for my roadmap?
  • What countries are key for my rollout?

  • Who else is selling to my customers?
  • How do I hit my stretch sales target?
  • Which platforms should I be selling into?
  • Which countries should be incentivized for my sales teams?

  • Who are best-in-breed partners and suppliers?
  • Where and how should we innovate?

  • Which companies should I invest in or acquire?
  • What is the addressable market for my portfolio companies?
  • Where is the smart money going?
