It is a grim reality that nine out of ten startups will fail. Yet there are also inspiring success stories such as the case of Steven Zhao, founder of Sandbox VR, who closed a US$68 million Series A funding round from a top-tier Silicon Valley VC firm in January. He will recount his epic startup adventure with the HKU community.
Zhao has nearly two decades of game development and entrepreneurial experience. He is the founder and CEO of HK-based Sandbox VR, the “holodeck” company. In 2003, Steven founded Blue Tea Games and later built a game studio in Hong Kong, where it developed top-selling casual downloadable titles, such as Dark Parables, as well as the mobile app “Mavenfall”, which received an Apple’s Editor’s Choice Award in 2015.
