Today, in the early hours of the largest technological shift since the smartphone, leading companies are beginning to understand what role augmented reality (AR) will play in their business strategy, Index AR Solutions President and CEO Dan Arczynski said as a featured speaker at the Mid-Atlantic Venture Association (MAVA) Fall C-Suite Summit, an annual, closed-door program for growth executives.
Launched in 2014, MAVA’s annual C-Suite Summit Series supports the leadership of high-growth companies by delivering an event with content focused on successful growth, best practices and planning for successful exits.
Arczynski was a featured speaker on “Driving Revenue by Leveraging Leading-Edge Technologies,” a panel discussion that offered executive attendees real-world guidance on how to begin AR and virtual reality technology deployments, and how leading-edge growth companies are incorporating these new technologies to drive revenue and increase productivity.
Arczynski and fellow MAVA panelists explored the positive impact that these new technologies are already having across organizations in a variety of ways – from increasing revenue, to engaging their customer base, to capturing new audiences, to quickly onboarding new hires and more.
David Steinberg Chairman and Founder of Radius Networks, moderated the panel, which also featured Aaron Sisto, Technology Architect at In-Q-Tel, and Elias Clarke Campbell, Founder and CEO of Forge Modern.
MAVA has been showcasing and supporting the most innovative high- growth companies born in the Mid-Atlantic for more than 30 years. Member investors and advisors of MAVA have supported the growth and success of companies such as comScore, Sourcefire, Alarm.com, Opower, Cvent, Blackboard, 2U and many more through their investment of financial and professional resources.
This year’s Summit summit was keynoted by Craig Shelburne, Co-Founder of Sonos, the popular smart speaker company that went public in August with a $1.5 billion IPO.
Underscoring the growing recognition of AR as a powerful tool for human performance and process improvement, The MAVA Summit is just one of several industry events where Arczynski and other Index AR Solutions executives have presented recently.
In October alone, Index was among a select group of external exhibitors at the inaugural Dominion Energy Innovation Expo, presented at the Utilities Technology Council™ (UTC) Region 3 Fall Meeting, and participated in the Southeastern Electric Exchange (SEE) Underground Distribution Committee meeting. Index also co-presented with customer MidAmerican Energy at the Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC) 2018 Human Performance Conference.
Later this month, Index AR will host its own event.
On November 14, the Fall 2018 Index AR Retreat will bring together select enterprises and interested parties to share and better understand AR and its application across multiple industries. This invitation-only event, now in its third year, helps decision-makers and operators understand how to accelerate the adoption of AR and make employees more safe, capable and productive while improving quality and enabling knowledge transfer.
