Making the Dream a Virtual Reality | Gabe Paez at The Wild

In part one of my conversation with Gabe Paez, the founder and CEO of The Wild, he discussed how his company has created a virtual reality platform that allows anyone with a VR headset to collaborate on architectural models with anyone else in the world. It’s a remarkable and fun enterprise.

In this second part of our conversation, Gabe opens up about the painful beginnings of his startup—how he struggled initially to get his company off the ground—and how he eventually found the funding he needed and landed those key first clients.
