After he produced his first short film at the age of fourteen – and thereby discovering his passion for turning ideas into reality –, Marc Forstmann founded his first company at the age of fifteen. “I wanted to have the opportunity to realize even greater ideas and projects.” The moment he tried some VR goggles at a street stall in Istanbul, he saw for the first time the future potential of this technology. Subsequently, he established his first virtual reality start up. The success was not long in coming: Soon Forstmann was working together with notable customers such as Hapag Lloyd or Ralph Lauren.
The determination to push the field of virtual reality further and to be amongst the best, drove Forstmann to found the Munich based inside GmbH, together with Andreas Will, in October 2016.
