It's hard to say Goodbye. I am sad to announce that we are closing Giroptic today March 5th, 2018. This journey started in 2008 with the idea to bring 360 capture to everyone - at a time when almost nobody had seen a 360 image. I knew this adventure would not be easy, everything had to be re-invented. You do not capture, share or view a 360 image the same way you do with a regular image. 45 creative talents, 45 amazing people, 45 friends… joined the voyage to push the envelope further and further. We built together products that were exciting, innovative and category defining with the idea to make spherical capture accessible to everyone. Last year, we shipped 20 000 cameras all over the world. Unfortunately, in a newly born market, this was not enough to build a sustainable business over time. For the past 8 months, we have been trying to find a new home for our technology. We were about to close a deal with a leading smartphone manufacturer - this would have helped us scale and deploy our vision. Sadly, it did not happen, last minute. Sometime you can be ahead of your time - I will always remember the excitement people would share with us after they had used our products. I would like to thank all of our Customers, Investors, Partners, Friends and Team for supporting us through this journey. Giroptic has been my whole life for 10 years and I couldn’t have worked with a better group of people.
