In 2017 Pioneer VR was created to solve a problem. People loved to experience virtual reality; the experiences that were merely being dreamt of 10 or 20 years ago existed here, now. But only to some. There was a lack of accessibility to the VR experience. In order to bridge the gap, founder Chris Fonte created Pioneer VR to provide the experience of Virtual Reality at events with friends, colleagues, for presentations, or merely for fun! Tons of virtual reality experiences made by competent developers are popping up all over the world, and deserve to be shared. Pioneer VR acts as the bridge between these developers and audiences throughout the Pioneer Valley and beyond.


Our Mission
To make virtual reality accessible to all

About the Founder

With a background in music and sound design, Chris (a.k.a. Fizz) Fonte constantly found himself working with independent game developers, bouncing back and forth about the games and experiences they wanted to create. Working on these various projects introduced Chris to the world of virtual reality. After learning what it was like to run a painting business in the Pioneer Valley, Chris realized that running a business was the most rewarding thing he could do with his time. That combined with his experience with game development. led him to created Pioneer VR.
