Orlando-Based Serious Simulations Selected to Present at ‘Veterans Business Battle’ in Houston

Orlando, Fla. — Serious Simulations LLC in Orlando was recently selected to present their business before 100+ investors in the “Veterans Business Battle” in Houston.

Sponsored by the Entrepreneur’s Organization of Houston (EO Houston), Rice University, local banks and the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), the Veterans Business Battle screened more than 130 veteran-owned startup companies from across the country to select a small group to showcase their ventures. Serious Simulations was one of only 16 businesses that made the cut, according to CEO Christopher M. Chambers.

“We were very pleased to be selected as one of the few companies making a presentation in person, and were the only company at the event involved in simulation training and virtual reality,” Chambers reported.

Serious Simulations LLC develops human motion based, virtual reality training systems for professional trainers focused on complex or dangerous military, law enforcement, emergency response, and commercial or industrial tasks.  They recently patented new wireless video processes for their own head mounted displays that also have wide application virtual reality displays for use in consumer and commercial markets.

The company designs and assembles training systems using custom made hardware and software components for specific skill training needs, combined with motion tracking systems, wireless communications devices, display technologies and commercial game engines.

Serious Simulations is a client company of the University of Central Florida Business Incubation Program located at Central Florida Research Park in East Orange County.
