"I’ve landed a great project developing a VR app for Samsung GearVR, which is something I couldn’t have imagined myself doing a short while ago. More importantly, I’m developing valuable professional relationships all the time just by being at the Upload space. You don’t need to work at networking here because it just happens to you. If you’re interested in AR and VR and want to immerse yourself in an environment of creative, passionate, and smart people in the industry--I could not think of a better place to be."
- Ian Dellota, Upload Student
"On demo day when I presented my final project, I met one of the judges who was working on a fascinating XR project relevant to my background. He encouraged me to apply for an internship with his company, and I was accepted. I wouldn’t have had the opportunity if it wasn’t for Upload’s friendly environment and the chance to demonstrate what I learned"
- Sherry Shih, Upload Student
"Upload's extensive partnerships in the VR industry generate powerful opportunities for alumni of their Unity Dev training course. Our team of students were able to work on an immersive experience for Stanford University, which taught us a great deal, and also generated a VR experience of value to their department."
- Julian Reyes, Keyframe Entertainment
"We are thrilled with our Upload intern partnership, which continues to evolve. Following their 10-week course, our interns were well prepared to hit the ground running, and built version 1.0 of a VR music education application. This prototype was a key initial step toward an ongoing, broader discussion with both a nationwide music education charity organization and a large state university. This collaboration was made possible by the unusual blend of Upload's combined VR education and work space."
- Steve Kurz, Outer Realm Co-Founder
“Over the last two years Upload has established itself as a pillar of the VR industry.

Upload is the kind of company that VR and AR needs at this stage of the medium's growth and beyond, a central nexus for the whole industry to flow through."
- Roy Taylor, Corporate VP Alliances AMD
"Upload not only established itself as the most influential VR media destination, but probably more importantly, provides a platform for discussion and dialogue in the VR community. In some ways they are the new Homebrew Computer Club of our lifetime.... Upload has the support of the most influential people in the VR industry."
- Paul Kim, Director of VR Content, Samsung
