The city of Lights is home of an innovative, creative and fun Chapter of the VR/AR Association. We know
business success depends more than ever on innovation. And we believe that VR and AR are changing our
world in multiples ways and secure richer evolution possibilities for our shared future.

Progress is easier together, so our chapter is built around the simple but powerful idea that meaningful
relationships can happen between unlikely partners.

Bienvenue dans le chapitre parisien de la VR/AR Association. Notre ambition est de faire grandir
l’écosystème de la réalité virtuelle à Paris en favorisant les échanges entre les acteurs du marché. Nous
sommes persuadés que le succès d’une entreprise dépend plus que jamais de son adaptation au
changement. Nous croyons également que la RV et la RA ont le pouvoir de transformer et de faire évoluer
notre monde.

Progressons ensemble ! Notre chapitre est construit autour de l'idée simple mais puissante que des relations
significatives avec des partenaires de différents horizons peuvent contribuer à l’aboutissement de nouveaux

VPSoraya Jaber soraya@thevrara.com

Soraya is a self-taught entrepreneur, startup cofounder and History and Art enthusiast. She studied at Paris 1 Pantheon Sorbonne and then co-founded her first company Opuscope at 20 years old. As XR is about to go mainstream, the company develops Minsight, a headset-first software which facilitates 3D content creation for non-technical people. Soraya is featured in the SH//FT program, which promotes HoloLens projects led by women entrepreneurs from all around the world. As she and her team of engineers and UX experts learned a lot through this VR journey, she joined the VR/AR Association (Paris Chapter) as Vice President in order to give back to the community and show the tremendous opportunities XR will bring." 



The 3D/VR/AR ecosystem is very fragmented. VRARA has managed to gather the key players in the space, to foster collaboration and make sure the important discussions which need to happen to push the ecosystem forward are indeed happening. It seemed like a natural fit to join the group, to share what we’ve learned over the years and get some feedback on what others are seeing.
