BMH Invests in no-code VR and AR learning provider 3spin DREAM
With 3spin DREAM, the SaaS start-up offers an innovative platform with which individual employee training and learning courses for virtual and augmented reality environments can be created without programming knowledge.
BMH (Beteiligungs-Managementgesellschaft Hessen mbH) participates in 3spin with its funds Hessen Kapital III and Mittelständische Beteiligungsgesellschaft Hessen (MBG H). With 3spin DREAM, the young Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offers an innovative platform with which companies, universities or service providers without programming knowledge can create individual employee training and learning courses for virtual and augmented reality environments (VR and AR). The total volume of the Series A financing round amounts to 2 million Euros.
Traditional e-learning often requires a high degree of abstraction and can hardly impart practical know-how. Training in specialized teaching institutions also causes considerable travel costs, explains Oliver Göck, founder and managing director of 3spin. “Augmented and virtual reality environments allow complex or potentially dangerous learning content to be conveyed from anywhere in a practical way, making training and training more memorable, safe and cost-effective,” adds his business partner Thomas Hoger. This is our vision of modern e-learning. Thanks to the financial support of BMH, we can now accelerate our growth once again.”
The learning platform “3spin DREAM” has been developed by Oliver Göck and Thomas Hoger in Darmstadt since 2018. The company “3spin”, which stands behind the platform, was originally founded in 2008 as a technology service provider for digital innovation. Göck and Hoger further developed the company and gradually created their own software solution with increasing technological know-how in the field of augmented and virtual reality with around 20 employees. Marketed today under the name 3spin DREAM, the product is a platform for easy creation and sharing of VR and AR training and has a clear unique selling point: The platform is based on a “no-code approach”. Users can create or revise complete training units for VR and AR environments without programming knowledge. These can then be published via the cloud and completed by learners worldwide online as well as offline. The offer is an alternative to expensive training programs programmed by external software agencies.
3spin plans to invest the new financial resources in the further expansion of the sales structures. VR and AR content will soon also be available for rent on the platform — from maintenance processes to occupational safety and soft skills training. Among other things, 3spin was able to win DEKRA — auditing company and one of the largest private education providers in Germany — as a strategic partner. Other cooperation partners of 3spin include Lufthansa, E.ON and ERGO.
