Mastering the metaverse with Bertrand Nepveu, Co-Founding Partner @ Triptyq Capital


On this week’s show, we spoke with Bertrand Nepveu, Co-Founding Partner @ Triptyq Capital.

Bertrand has spent his entire career working in the field of computer science and microelectronics. From a very young age, he knew that he wanted to be an entrepreneur like his grandfather and change the world. Hardcore gamer since Donkey Kong on the ColecoVision, he became obsessed with virtual reality when he tried the Power Glove on the Nintendo Entertainment System. As an early adopter and gadget lover, he founded Vrvana in 2005 in order to fulfill his dream of improving the gaming experience by bringing the user inside the game. Geek at heart, he gathered the best and brightest in Montreal to create the ultimate mixed-reality headset, which won “Tom’s Hardware” Best in Show at CES 2017. In September 2017, Vrvana decided to continue the adventure alongside Apple and Bertrand moved in California and worked for Apple for more than three years. Bertrand holds a Computer Engineering degree from the Université de Sherbrooke and an MBA from HEC Montréal.

On the show, we spoke about:

  • The endless possibilities of the metaverse
  • Selling Vrvana to Apple
  • Quebec Metaverse Manifesto
  • How people can shape technology
  • How the metaverse can have a positive impact
  • Starting an investment fund focused on entertainment startups

Bertrand is one of the most innovative minds in the country. I was lucky enough to  visit the future with him during this conversation.
