This summer, the Dingman Center will be conducting interviews with the fifteen student startups who are participating in our Terp Startup summer accelerator at the College Park WeWork. Participating student entrepreneurs received a stipend up to $5,000 that would enable them to work exclusively on their startups over eight weeks in the summer.
Founder & CEO: Galen Stetsyuk ’20, Computer Science major
DC: Tell us about your startup. What problem are you solving and for whom?
Stetsyuk: The Virtual Reality Industry has disappointed many so far with content offerings that are below the standards set by the games industry. Content for VR games lacks the quality and depth players are used to in console and PC video games. VR is also a more difficult platform to develop high quality graphics, so there are also very few games with the same visual quality players are used to. Finally, VR has the issue of causing varying levels of discomfort in more intense experiences. Given that VR has the potential to revolutionize the entire entertainment industry, MPLEX is focused on solving these problems and unleashing that potential.
