Idea and Inspiration Behind The ColdFox
During the interview with TimesNext, Gitish told us that he believes-
“Whoever experiences virtual reality first time goes with a long-lasting impression.”
The founder experienced VR in 2014 for the first time during his graduation in a roller coaster ride in VR. It gave his thoughts a new dimension. He started exploring this tech with his friend/batchmate Kunal Nandwana (one of the co-founder) and found that VR can be the solution to many visual restrictions in today’s media. They started creating solutions for the hospitality industry and now serves almost every industry in the market like automobiles, real estate, media & entertainment, training & education, health & wellness, sports, etc.
Challenges the Outset Faced
The founder Started The ColdFox as a student entrepreneur. Hence, it was a difficult call at that time. Further, VR was also a new tech for many of the people; it was hard to work on such tech with having no expertise around you. The founder started his work in 2014 and incorporated it in 2017. Gitish worked for his startup without any mentor, government schemes, incubation, and such an ecosystem; however, he still considers it as a good exercise.
The ColdFox Collaborations and Partnerships
The company has worked for various industries and corporates like US Polo, Flying Machine, Sattviko, Style & Scissors, Aura health & spa, etc. The ColdFox now has an experience of B2B, B2C, B2B2B markets with private & non-confidential projects. The startup is growing with VR and now also starting to work in AR (Augmented Reality).
The First Milestone and Current Growth Status
The ColdFox achieved its first milestone when its team created an MVP around 2015-16. Currently, the startup is under a million INR.
Founder’s Vision For ColdFox
The founder is looking forward to a future where the world is entirely mapped digitally and becomes interactive. The ColdFox’s vision is to act as creators & catalyst towards creating immersive and interactive experiences for businesses and consumers.
