Redefining The Future Of Work

Virbela was developed to provide an immersive, virtual solution for the real-world challenges facing organizations, remote workers, and learners today. By creating an inclusive, community-driven online space that promotes productivity, collaboration, and realistic interactions, we empower companies to grow and scale their businesses and ideas – faster, more efficiently, and more sustainably.

Technology

We believe in people and the power of technology to make the world – both physical and virtual – a better place. Our state-of-the-art technology creates contextually relevant experiences that are accessible, affordable, and adaptable to your changing needs and budget.

Autonomy

In Virbela you control where you go, what you do, and how you do it, setting yourself up to be more productive, effective, comfortable, and confident. From the layout of your campus to the décor in your office to collaborating real-time and presenting to your team, you have complete in-world autonomy.

Community

People are at the heart of everything we aspire to achieve. We believe in creating a diverse, welcoming environment where people can develop strong social connections, collaborate with one another, and foster a true sense of community – be it through a private campus, team suite, or our open campus.

Inclusivenes

Inclusivity and transparency are at our core. We want the future of work and learning to be open to all. From developing software that’s compatible with your existing platforms to building worlds that fit your unique needs to customizable avatars that enable true representation, everyone is welcome in Virbela.

Our Story

As an organization, Virbela has an understanding of human psychology at its core. That’s something that transmits through the virtual worlds we build for our customers. Ultimately, Virbela was created by people for people.
When Alex Howland was a student doing his PhD in behavioral and organizational psychology, he carried out research on the impact of simulated training environments on individuals, compared to equivalent real-life scenarios. Alex’s pioneering work found that virtual training had an almost identical psychological effect on attendees as you’d expect after a real-life, in-person session.
A spark was lit and the future of remote work and learning changed forever. Alex’s findings fueled a hunger to go further, starting work on an immersive, virtual reality platform that focused on education and team development. This innovative approach to connecting dispersed colleagues and students caught the eye of a business enterprise body, who promptly awarded Alex a $50,000 grant to start what is now, Virbela.
