The Future of Virtual Reality

Jeff Wasson, a partner at Boost VC, will lead a panel of thought leaders in exploring this topic. After the panel discussion, attendees will have the opportunity to try out VR demo's from MIT and Boston startups and mingle with other members of the VR@MIT community

Panel Topic: The technology of VR could change the world but no one is quite sure exactly how everything is going to play out. In an environment of intense optimism and great uncertainty, how do VC's think about investing and entrepreneurs think about raising money. What is this industry going to look like in the next year, five years, and ten years.
