Company Description

SaaS platform for the animation, video game development, and the marketing industryUNOMI is a SaaS platform for animators and video game developers. UNOMI leverages advanced voice recognition and motion capture technology that automates a lot of the most time-consuming aspects of animation production. Our voice recognition software understands human speech in multiple languages. This allows animators to easily create the speech of multiple 2D and 3D animated characters and, for some, UNOMI gives them the ability to create content on a daily basis. UNOMI’s motion capture software will give content creators the ability to easily track human movement within their home or studio, which will potentially eliminate the need to rent expensive motion capture studio space and equipment. Large-scale animation studios will be able to drastically reduce costs, allowing them to create more content in a significantly shorter amount of time. UNOMI will also be releasing an Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality, 3D object plugin for Adobe software, which will allow users to easily implement and animate 3D objects quickly. We believe each UNOMI software will be intuitive, which will eliminate a learning curve for most users.

Security Description

A Crowd Note modifies the typical convertible note so that the crowd does not automatically convert to equity shareholders on the next financing and remain off the issuer’s capitalization table, but the crowd will still participate in any exit as if they had converted to equity. If there is no future financing, the holders of the Crowd Note still have upside, but could miss out significantly.
