At Alpha3D, they believe in an immersive digital future and it is their mission to make creating 3D content fast, easy, scalable, and accessible for everyone. They democratize creating 3D content so that we can all build the best future digital experiences together.
PitchDeck for more details:
Alpha3D enables users to easily create digital assets 10x cheaper in minutes, instead of days, with just a few clicks and no previous 3D modeling knowledge necessary.
All you have to do is upload your 2D images to the Alpha3D app and let the AI take care of the rest. Compatible with any 3D environment, the digital assets are completely interactable and can be used in Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), Virtual Try-On (VTO), gaming, the Metaverse, or even as an NFT.
The metaverse market was worth $22.79 billion in 2020 and is expected to be worth $996 billion by 2030.
By 2026, 25% of people will spend an hour per day in the metaverse
Considering the current switch which is already happening towards the 3D, brands and retailers are meeting their customers where they are - in the metaverse. This means that the demand for 3D content, as the key component for enabling the development of virtual platforms (the Metaverse), has reached a new high.
However, the creation of 3D models is extremely expensive, laborious and time-consuming. Creating a single digital asset can take a whole team weeks and thousands of dollars.
Clients coming organically - 3-4 companies on daily basis. Everyone wants to save costs on 3D artists.
Top 4 needs to cover with this round: a) Scalability - 3D artists clean 100-200 models per day and they look to enable more research to boost the quality of the final results; b) Educate market about the approach; c) Data acquisition - acquire additional data sets; d) Recruit machine learning scientists - 5-15 needed;
Remote team at first - total team of 35 from 14 different countries.
