Xultour - A digital VR app for e-learning, advertising and tourism.

flare was educational and enjoyable. As a team we learnt how to setup a business from scratch, make a reliable business plan, and network with many different professionals. Combining our expertise, we launched Xultour together! Our secret was to try, without worrying about failing, as I say: 'If it doesn’t exist, build it!'. If we can do it, so can you.
