VR Developers and 3D Artists/Modelers Wanted for Student Start-Up

This is an opportunity to disrupt the current way golfers study the course, which is crucial especially in competitive play. We have gotten great traction after speaking with a few companies in the industry, and now I am looking for a team consisting of VR developers and 3D artists to help me create an initial proof of concept. Whether it be freelance work or you are interested in being part of a startup, please reach out to me at No golfing experience or knowledge is required!
