Your exclusive invite to try immersive technology for yourself with sector specialist Station12...
The UK is a global leader in the Sports, Entertainment and Knowledge sectors and is the source of some of the most successful and powerful franchises and intellectual properties in the world. From content production and live events to enabling technologies, the sector is far reaching and the exit routes for investors well-trodden. New technologies are constantly changing and enhancing these sectors, creating opportunities for knowledgeable investors such as Station 12. We are a sector specialist with a track record in venture capital investing, successfully working across sports, television, advertising, live events, music, gaming and education. Our reputation as a trusted specialist has been enhanced this year by our appointment as an official investor partner to Innovate UK, giving us privileged access to emerging British companies who are developing new businesses adopting immersive technologies such as VR and AR. These companies are looking to both create solutions for the creative industries and extend these to other sub-sectors of industry. They are the pioneers of the “immersive boom”.
2-dimensional media has been used up until now to access content and knowledge but we are now seeing a transformation in how we interact with digital information. Immersive technologies such as virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality are fundamentally changing how we think about everyday communication, education, work and play. This Fourth Industrial revolution is set to shape and impact our daily lives. For investors it is creating new and exciting investment opportunities within an industry predicted to be worth $569 billion globally by 2025. The companies we are seeing are eligible both as EIS investments and enhanced as 'knowledge intensive', allowing them to access greater EIS capacity. Station12 plans to invest in a number of these immersive opportunities this tax year.
Join Station12 on Wednesday 6 November, from 9am – 11am at Digital Catapult, the UK's leading immersive research hub just by King's Cross station. Come and join to learn about this dynamic and fast growing sector as well as personally participating in demonstrations of intuitive and immersive 3D content utilising virtual reality. Light refreshments will be served.
Station 12’s team combines operational, investment and advising experience, giving us a unique and deep understanding of the Sports, Entertainment and Knowledge sectors. Station 12 have worked across television, advertising, music and film, as well as leading investments in these sectors, together with gaming, sports, live events and theatre.
As with all investments, the offers shown on the CoInvestor platform will place your capital at risk: Investors may not get back the full amount invested. The investments listed are unlisted companies which are likely to be harder to value and sell than quoted shares.
