The inside story

Described as “a flight simulator for surgeons” Fundamental VR was founded by tech pioneer and entrepreneur Richard Vincent.

The company builds and licenses highly realistic VR content that trains surgeons to operate on the human body via haptic-feedback sensors. The platform enables surgeons across the world to come together, practise new techniques, repeat and rehearse procedures without ever touching a human body.

The company also sells to life sciences corporates, medical robotics companies, and hospital networks.

Why we chose to invest

Fundamental VR already had an excellent management team with an impressive roster of clients and strong growth metrics. The global Covid pandemic only served to strengthen the case for remote collaboration. FVR has partnered with Meta to showcase the growing importance of VR technology in the healthcare space.

The company has since developed further specialties in opthamology, urology, orthopaedics and robotics.
