Every idea starts with a problem. Ours was simple: high quality 3D visualisations are too expensive. Jan Spaticchia was the Founder and Chairman at Empowered Brands. He wanted to offer a Virtual Reality gym product to his franchisees to support them during the pre-sale period of a new franchise opening.
The cost of providing this bespoke service was prohibitively high. There was a simple explanation; there were relatively few providers of this skilled service and a high demand which kept pricing artificially high. Our founders combined the serial entrepreneurship of Jan Spaticchia with the 3D creative talent of James Wood to make virtual spaces visible and accessible to a wider audience.
By developing bespoke, high quality virtual 3D content in-house and engaging with customers directly, we’re able to provide our services at a fraction of the industry standard. There’s nothing complicated about it. We create virtual 3D content to help our customers do things better.
On 9th May 2021, Jan Spaticchia was lost to cancer after a very short illness. He was 51 years young. Jan’s wife Claire remains an active shareholder within the business and the entire Visivo team is committed to maintaining Jan’s vision for the company.
