Hashplay Story.



New technologies allow companies to capture more data through all kinds of sources and sensors. Think satellite, audio feeds, Internet of Things.

That’s not the end of the story. To be more precise, that’s not even the story. We seek to help build that bridge to the story behind data.

Indeed, the story must have useful information. With Artificial Intelligence, we bring order and insights through simulation and prediction. With real-time immersive user interface, the story now becomes accessible.

This has enabled us to build our AI-powered data story building platform that helps executives make sense of complex systems in real time. Useful information comes from the geospatial context embedded within the digital twin. The patented Immersive Data Engine enables intuitive interaction with the story through a 360-degree environment.


Hashplay was founded in early 2015 by Jan-Philipp Mohr, Ingo Nadler and Jan Schlüter in the Bay area.

Our team’s background spans from game development, 3D animation, stereography, computer engineering and computer vision, investment banking, data science, and robotics.

We have received funding from top venture capitalists like Metatron Global, IVA Ventures, VMR Capital, VCO Ventures, WSGR and others. We also participated in Founderspace in San Francisco in August 2015.
