Fectar, a Dutch-based Metaverse platform, raised 2.45 million euros in its latest funding round

Fectar, the Dutch-based Metaverse Creator Platform for Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality, has raised 2.45 million euros in its latest investment round by a consortium of experienced tech informal investors, led by Mr. Jaap van Engers. The funding will accelerate Fectar’s international growth and improve the user experience for its six million users worldwide, who have already downloaded the most popular AR/VR app.

Leading the Way in VR and AR

“We are extremely grateful for the support and belief of our investors,” said Fectar CEO and founder Eugène Kuipers. “With the increased capabilities of VR headsets and smartphones and the development of 5G networks, the application of Virtual and Augmented Reality will become more widely available and accessible to users. In addition, computer vision and machine learning advancements will enable more accurate and responsive AR and VR experiences. As a result, we can expect more companies and industries to adopt mobile AR and VR as marketing, education, and training tools. We’re excited to see what the future holds for Fectar.”

Revolutionizing the Metaverse for Everyone, Everywhere

Fectar’s mission is to democratize the Metaverse by providing an interactive 3D experience in both Virtual and Augmented Reality, available on various types of VR glasses and standard smartphones. The company’s approach has gained a substantial following in its home market, and the new financing will enable Fectar to expand its business and bring its services to even more clients worldwide.

“Fectar has shown tremendous potential, and I am excited to be part of their journey,” said Mr. Jaap van Engers. “I believe in the team and their vision for the future of VR and AR, and I am confident that they will continue to thrive and grow in the years to come.”
