VIRTUIX - Virtuix was founded by Jan Goetgeluk. He quit his investment banking job to develop the project, investing 12 months of his time and a $200,000 personal investment in developing a prototype. Jan Goetgeluk is the founder and CEO of Virtuix and the developer of the Virtuix Omni, the first virtual reality interface to move freely and naturally in video games and virtual worlds. Jan is originally from Belgium and came to Houston in 2007 as a Project Engineer for Katoen Natie, a Belgian petrochemical logistics conglomerate. Virtuix was founded in April 2013 and was one of the pioneers of the recent wave of Virtual Reality (“VR”) innovation. The launch of the Microsoft Kinect in November 2010 prompted Virtuix Founder and CEO Jan Goetgeluk to believe that virtual reality was about to make a comeback. He started working on the Omni motion platform in 2011, driven by a desire to walk naturally in VR instead of pushing buttons on a gamepad or keyboard while sitting on a chair. After two years of research and development, Goetgeluk launched the Omni Kickstarter campaign in June 2013, which raised more than $1.1MM of seed investment and became one of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns.
Jan decided to stay in the US and left Katoen Natie to obtain his MBA degree at Rice University in Houston. He became President of the Rice Finance Club and Founder and Chair of the inaugural Rice Energy Finance Summit in 2009. While at Rice, Jan received the Jones Citizen award for his leadership contributions to the business school and the Jones Scholar award for his academic performance.
