Company Overview

Facebook has serious intentions on making Oculus the first mainstream VR platform, and is currently on trajectory to do so. That said, the Oculus Store currently has few tier-1 titles and - in response to their current niche audience - most of them games.

Whenever a new technology like Virtual Reality is widely adopted (like Smartphones and Web 1.0 before it), there are massive opportunities for new category winners. Maloka is positioned to be one such winner in the ever growing mindfulness / meditation space.

Maloka is the beginning of an incredible platform ready to receive the wider audience as Oculus headsets become more popular. Maloka was made for VR and mobile users - embracing the playfulness, visuals, and otherworldly exploration that makes mindfulness fun.
