IrisVR is a software platform allowing architects to automatically convert their design files into a virtual reality format, so that clients can explore and “inhabit” a virtual 3D building using a VR headset prior to the construction of a physical structure.  The company was founded in Middlebury, VT by Shane Scranton and Nate Beatty, and is currently headquartered in New York, NY.  IrisVR completed the TechStars NY program in Spring 2015, and subsequently raised a round of Seed Capital during June 2015.
