[ Upload VR raises $4.5M in Series A ]

Upload VR has raised $4.5 million in Series A funding.

Founded in 2014, Upload VR consists of co-working spaces, training courses and a media publication. The startup just opened a massive 20,000 square-foot office in Los Angeles last month, where it is heavily emphasizing its education initiatives, which it has built up in collaboration with Google, HTC and Udacity. Upload’s San Francisco office houses more than 35 companies in its co-working space.

The new financing  will be used to  expand Upload‘s three core domains: co-working, education and media, with a focus on Upload LA and the official launch of Upload EDU.
