The CEO of medical VR startup OSSO VR explains how he convinced investors of the effectiveness of medical VR training.
Since its founding in 2016, Osso VR has received $109 million in funding. The startup raised the largest sum in a Series C funding round in March of this year. CEO Justin Barad describes in an interview how the developers of the medical VR training were able to convince investors to give $66 million.

Osso VR aims to train doctors in various surgical techniques using virtual reality. The realistic VR training for surgeons is especially remarkable for its high-quality graphics.
Both the virtual patients and the medical instruments are meant to appear as real as possible. To achieve this, Osso VR works with design experts from the film and video game industries.
Earlier this year, Barad and his team raised $66 million in funding. The main investor is venture capital firm Oak HC/FT. In an interview with Business Insider, Barad outlines the key points of his presentation during the third round of funding.
