Below is our recent interview with Donn Gurule, Founder and CEO at Enviropedia:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to your company?
A: Enviropedia is a new kind of dynamic contextual search, chronological navigation, and spatial computing platform and framework for the world’s information. It’s like doing a thousand searches, compiling the results and then organizing the information in the blink of an eye. It works much more efficiently in spatial environments (like AR, VR, and the metaverse) than any search engine could.
Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
- A: Facebook’s META announcement: We were surprised Facebook decided on Meta. The dates seem to give us a real priority advantage. We wrote our descriptions in the trademark filing for METALENS completely with the metaverse in mind. So we think there’s potentially significant overlap between us. But, we have a filing by eight months according to the US Trademark Office.
- On the Metaverse: Enviropedia is building a metaverse, under the METALENS brand. One of the biggest advantages we have is our ability to move any real-world data in and out of any spatial environment with our patent-pending approach. You can do some very interesting things with things (like NFTs) in a metaverse with contextually-driven environments. We’ll be talking more about that soon.
Q: Can you give us more insights into your offering?
A: Right now we have a REG CF offering through Silicon Prairie that allows for both accredited and non-accredited investors to participate. We are also exploring supplemental options, such as things like an accredited-only offering to go with the REG CF. I would strongly encourage you to look at the terms of the SAFE and let us know if there are any questions.
Q: What can we expect from your company in next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: We’ve got some wild designs on the drawing board for augmented reality, virtual reality, and the metaverse. Our first release, STREETLENS will be launching around mid-2022, connecting hotels, restaurants, and entertainment with a world map, and will have an augmented reality view. We have a large pipeline of ideas and products we are considering in the areas of sports, news, real estate, decentralized finance, retail, transportation, genealogy, blockchain and advertising to start. Our goal is to be the most widely used information platform in the world within the next few years, and using data in powerful ways current search engines don’t, but on a large scale. Our pledge is to be so good we can’t be ignored.
Q: What is the best thing about your company that people might not know about?
A: Reality, science and truth mean everything to us at Enviropedia. Quality of information is what matters — social media in current form is like junk food for the mind. Enviropedia’s information sources (and partners) must demonstrate a proven track record of relaying reliable information before we work with them. We don’t let fringe organizations be a part of Enviropedia. We know people are tired of the polarization that some circles of social media has seemingly woven into their revenue models. We see a huge opportunity to take the world’s information and use it as an instrument of light, not leverage an addictive drug like anger, inject confusion, or give half-truths or pseudo-science, or give any chance to contaminate reason, logic and truth. Our efforts revolve squarely around finding ways to get to the simple truth with reliable information from quality information sources, and to eliminate any dynamic where confusion can be leveraged as a weapon. I think Enviropedia represent’s the next big thing in information science, and the logical evolution beyond social media.
