Nextech AR CEO Evan Gappelberg comments “I continue to invest and buy more shares because I’m extremely excited about the Metaverse and our business prospects within the Metaverse, and don’t believe that our current share price reflects the upside potential of our businesses. The Metaverse opportunity is new, exciting and huge to most companies, but we have been working on it for the past few years which gives us what I believe is a head start. We are starting to see business momentum in our 3D and AR product offerings as more and more brands and companies are beginning to recognize this massive opportunity. Just recently, companies like Facebook, Epic Games, Microsoft, Unity, Nike, Adidas, Budweiser, and more have all joined the Metaverse revolution and are looking to companies like Nextech and others to provide 3D and AR solutions. As we continue to innovate and roll out new product offerings that fit into the Metaverse narrative I'm very optimistic about our growth in 2022 and beyond. I’m investing today because I see many years of strong forward growth ahead, primarily in our expansive ARitize technology stack, which includes; ARitize Metaverse Studio, ARitize 3D, ARitize Ads, ARitize CAD, ARitize Decorator, ARitize Holograms, ARitize CPG, ARitize labs, ARitize University, ARitize Event 3D, ARitize Portals, ARitize Concerts, ARitize Capture, ARitize Play".
Gappelberg joined Proactive Investors to discuss the news:
