Highstreet is created from LumiereVR, a computer vision based VR retail company established in 2015. The team has built a commerce based metaverse over the years by piecing together components built by various household names from brands like Hershey’s Chocolate to Victoria Secrets, bigger groups like L’Oreal to Madison Square Garden as well.
We’ve got a great list of investors including HTC, Palmdrive Capital, Cherubic Ventures from the traditional side, Mechanism, Jump Trading, and NGC from crypto. Our most recent investment round is led by a combination of top tier brands and exchanges, allowing us to build interoperability between games natively in our metaverse.
As the real and virtual worlds collide, Highstreet will be at that intersection welcoming everyone as residents of our Metaverse and shoppers of our Phygital Marketplace.
