IRVINE, CA–(Marketwired – Oct 13, 2014) – EON Reality Inc., the world leader in Virtual Reality based knowledge transfer for industry, education, and edutainment, has signed an agreement with The State Investment Corporation and State Informatics Ltd to establish an Interactive Digital Center in Mauritius that will be operated through a new Mauritius-based Company, EON Mauritius. The latter will serve as a springboard for the African continent wide Virtual Reality and Augmented based knowledge transfer solution rollout. With a focus on Technical Vocational Training, this IDC will develop applications to fast-track employable students throughout Africa and disseminate these applications across the continent.
EON Mauritius will also serve as the African headquarters of EON’s Learn for Life Program. This program has been established to facilitate, through VR/AR solutions, the learning necessary for less developed communities to become more self-sufficient. Projects from EON Mauritius will not only impact on regional companies’ bottom lines but directly impact the quality of life for millions of African workers and youth.
“Today we’ve taken a significant step in realizing the potential of EON Reality’s VR/AR knowledge transfer solution in Africa,” said Dan Lejerskar, Chairman of EON Reality. “Mauritius is the only international financial center with membership in all the major African regional organizations and is the location of choice for multinational corporations in Africa. Mauritius, the gateway to Africa, with its highly educated workforce and its growing middle class population segment is the ideal place for EON to reach the entire continent of Africa.”
“Our investment in the Mauritius IDC Hub is an important step in our African strategy,” said Mr. Iqbal Mallam-Hasham, Managing Director of The State Investment Corporation. “As the gateway to Africa, Mauritius will help EON bring its world leading Augmented and Virtual Reality knowledge transfer tools to developing communities in Africa. The IDC Hub will help increase income per capita by accelerating knowledge transfer to communities across Africa. EON Mauritius will enable the continent to learn faster and hasten development of the workforce to address Africa’s pressing needs.”
