Giant Otter Technologies, inc.

GiantOtter combines research from Harvard and MIT to bridge the gap between digital and live instruction, empowering people to learn and practice social skills through open-ended dialogue (typed or spoken) in vivid, safe web/mobile-based 3D environments. Our first product is SchoolLife, a 3D anti-bullying simulation where students walk in the shoes of a victim and bystander to learn empathy skills through unscripted conversations with characters driven by a massive database of recorded dialogue. Future products will target professionals through a software as a service (SaaS) platform.

The wisdom of experienced mentors at the VMS has really helped us get started, and allowed us to move fast.
