End of Year Reflection 2019

Updated: Apr 2


That’s a wrap on 2019! Such an amazing year for echoAR with so many exciting updates, professional growth, and continuous development. With hundreds of developers and creators using our cloud platform to build exciting AR/VR applications, we are humbled by the opportunity to empower this community of builders with tools to create and deploy immersive 3D experiences. This was the year we joined the Techstars family, awarded the Y Combinator SUS grant, joined the Verizon 5G Challenge, incubated at RLab.nyc, featured on The Hill, mentioned on Business Wire, and more. We are honored to share our journey over the last year in this newsletter. Thank YOU for your never-ending support. Onward and upward in 2020!
