In November 2018, Magic Leap launched their Creator Program with the objective of building an ecosystem around the Magic Leap technology. Opuscope — the startup developing Minsar — was notified earlier this month that they were selected as one of the young and groundbreaking startups to receive funding out of 6,500 initial candidates. The program provides grants to startups in the amounts of 20,000 to 500,000 USD, with a total of 10 million USD in available funds.
