On this episode of The Studentpreneur Show, we speak with Matt Shumer, CEO of Visos. Visos is a virtual reality (VR) company developing technology to help with industrial training, education, medical simulations, and design.
Current VR headsets are not built for enterprise purposes. Many headsets available are either “too expensive and difficult to use, or lack the visual quality needed to run enterprise-level simulations.” Visos aims to address that gap.
Listen along as Taegan and Matt also talk about the reality of working with investors, using college resources, and balancing life as a CEO and college student.
Gift-giving is such a fun and exciting part of the holiday season! But every year you likely find yourself burdened with some gifts that you really don’t want. Never fear–you can sell unwanted holiday gifts with minimal effort, and you can use your profits to buy something you actually want…like groceries or that trip to Iceland!
The Humanities are a large field, including subjects as widespread as theater, visual arts, film, music, English language and literature, history, and foreign languages. If you’re studying the Humanities, you have probably had someone ask you how you plan to make money with that degree. Someone inconsiderate may have even mocked your degree because it doesn’t necessarily include “transferable skills” like some others (e.g. math or biology). But what they don’t realize (and what you may not even realize yourself) is that you have developed plenty of really useful skills – skills that can score you some cash and an incredibly fulling career.
