Spatial: Connected Distributed Teams into One Global Office
Jacob Loewenstein – Spatial (NY)
Spatial is available today and enables people across AR, VR, PC, and Mobile to collaborate as if in the same room.
We work with many large companies today facilitating team meetings, 3D information reviews, and training.
This year, we’ll be adding more features enabling you to replace your desktop for working by yourself; this will combine with our collaboration features to help you feel like you’re sitting next to your colleagues all day long.

Spatial’s mission is to empower people to be more connected, creative, and productive. Our first product transforms how people work. Organizations are increasingly distributed across offices and information doesn’t flow easily. Success depends on people working together. Spatial is the collective computing platform for organizations to unlock their productive and creative potential.
Spatial was founded in 2016 and raised a seed round from investors including iNovia Capital, Expa (founded by Garrett Camp), Lerer Hippeau, Leaders Fund, Samsung NEXT, as well as angels including Mark Pincus (Founder of Zynga) and Andy Hertzfeld (Co-Inventor of the Macintosh). We are a passionate team of 3D Design and AR/VR experts based in New York and San Francisco, and are currently hiring. Check out our postings and join us to build the collective future of computing!
