NexTech AR Solutions Corp (CSE:NTAR) (OTCMKTS:NEXCF) CEO Evan Gappelberg has a message for investors watching major tech players pump money into augmented reality: We’re the only pure play AR company on the block.
AI Factory co-founder Victor Shaburov actually worked as Snap’s director of engineering from 2015 to 2018, the report noted, and he joined the company when a previous venture of his, Looksery Inc, was also bought by Snap.

Gappelberg sees those acquisitions, as well as other big names like Google beefing up its augmented reality platform ARCore or Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) looking to utilize Spark AR in advertising. But his company is a strong AR player in its own right.
“While AR/ VR funding and acquisitions are accelerating with SNAP, GOOG, FB, AAPL, MSFT leading the charge by plowing billions into the space, Nextech was up over 400% in 2019,” Gappelberg told Proactive in an email. “[NexTech] remains the only ‘pure play’ investment for 2020."
