The founder of the SensiVR Health project is Katarzyna Koba, who runs an immersive technology education business
under the brand RoboKoba.
The idea was born in 2018 at The FuseBox Hub - Brighton Immersive Lab residency, where the originator of the sensiVR project met the first advisors in the field of building a successful business strategy (G. Butler), creative technology (A. Baker) and innovative data visualization (S. Burton).
That's when she decided to turn an artistic work of art into a successful project with a mission to develop confidence in school-aged children.
In March 2020, the sensiVR project debuted as a finalist in the First Worldwide Online Hackathon organized by the Virtual Medicine Conference in San Francisco.
Against all odds, when the specter of a pandemic brought the economy to a halt around the world, everyone was shutting down, cutting costs and going bankrupt - RoboKoba brought a tech startup to life,

Michalska), Venture INC (M. Surowiec) and Bosch Group (K. Boczkowska).

Weninger)
