The San Francisco-based business sought to “expand beyond event visualizations into corporate metaverses” last year and received $15 million in capital. Allseated did, in fact, launch a “metaverse for enterprises” in May of last year. However, the company also announced today that it is spinning out its so-called “meetaverse” division into a separate business, though it gave no further details regarding the reason behind the move, the person leading it, or the source of funding.


Allseated shifting its whole attention back to real-world events may have something to do with the metaverse hype train fall, it is probably reasonable to presume. When the globe dug down behind closed doors, the pandemic proved a windfall for virtual events platforms. Companies like London-based Hopin earned a stratospheric $5 billion value only to falter when real-world events returned to the battlefield.

In order to expand its space visualization and collaboration platform, Allseated just secured $43 million in capital, including investments from Magma Ventures, Level Structured Capital, Vestech Partners, NYFF, and WGG.
