Magic Leap Sets Up Company in Finland

(TechCrunch) Magic Leap has set up a company in Helsinki to gain access to Finland’s vast, Nokia- and gaming-driven reservoir of VR and AR talent. In July, Magic Leap registered a company in Helsinki with CFO Scott Henry as the chairman of the board.
Finland has strong know-how in technologies (especially in optics, hardware, and software) that are all highly relevant in the quest for VR/AR domination. Magic Leap already had a Finnish connection through Shalinder Sidhu, a Vice President of Software at Magic Leap and former Nokia employee, who spent a year in Finland leading the development of the full software stack for Nokia’s entire portfolio of Linux smartphones.
