Vantage Point was founded under the belief that while technology can cause apathy, immersive technology can drive empathy and fundamentally make the world more human. We believe that the heart of all we do is human. The way we make the world more human is by using technology to teach and inspire people to become the very best versions of themselves they always hoped to be. Today Vantage Point is actively developing the platform and the products to train people on EQ-driven skills and soft skills that matter, with the ultimate goal of enabling humans to unlock their full potential. We are tacking enterprise training around important topics, beginning with tackling Workplace Anti-Sexual Harassment training.
"I BELIEVE IN A WORLD WHERE WOMEN HAVE AN EQUAL SEAT AT EVERY TABLE ACROSS STEM FIELDS... WHERE GIRLS CAN OWN AND CONFIDENTLY DISPLAY THEIR ABILITIES, AND DIVERSE PERSPECTIVES LEAD TO WORLD-CHANGING INNOVATIONS."
Vantage Point was founded in 2017 by Morgan Mercer, a two-time survivor of sexual violence. In 2016, Morgan took a trip to hear Vantage Point's now-advisor Sara Elizabeth Dill speak at a TEDxMonte Carlo talk about women as weapons of war. After the TED talk, Morgan, Sara, and various other speakers engaged in a conversation about education surrounding gender-based violence. The unifying perspective raised by both men and women was that no one knew how to identify core intervention points, no one knew what the appropriate actions to take in intervention were, and no one knew how to respond even if somebody came forward with their story of harassment, assault, or any form of sexual violence. After relating this to her personal experience of sharing her past with her friends and community, Morgan realized that society lacked proper education around the topic. Morgan, realizing the power Virtual Reality (VR) could have in re-shaping the way sexual-harassment is approached and recognizing the level of empowerment individuals can receive through VR, decided to start Vantage Point.
