Expansion of Advisory Board Advances Fast-Growing Metaverse XR Creation Platform’s Ability to Raise Significant Financing Rounds in Near Future
MetaVRse, Inc., provider of a code-optional 3D game engine, announced that technology finance pundit Scott Henry has joined the company’s advisory board as a shareholder.
Henry has an extensive background scaling innovative businesses, and has held finance and operational executive roles with several high-growth companies, including most recently as CFO of competitive mobile gaming platform company Skillz, Inc. (NYSE: SKLZ), and as CFO of spatial computing company Magic Leap, Inc.
“As part of the MetaVRse advisory board, Mr. Henry will provide guidance as we navigate the process of securing capital to rapidly scale the company,” comments MetaVRse CEO, Paul Konieczny. “Scott brings with him more than three decades of experience helping high-growth companies scale. There are few people who understand the nuances of financing business growth and development better than Scott, and his deep understanding of the XR world make him an ideal fit.”
“From the first time I met the founders at MetaVRse, I knew they were onto something big,” says Henry. “They took 5 years to create an easy-to-use platform and build a world-class roster of customers and partners. They are well-positioned for scale and growth. Spatial computing and XR is the next trillion-dollar industry, and MetaVRse is one of the companies paving the way and making it accessible to all players.”
