After Google acquired award-winning virtual reality game studio Owlchemy Labs, entrepreneurs Alex Schwartz and Cy Wise set out to fix something they found profoundly broken. They used their experience in sociology and human behavior, building game studios, and designing weird but intuitive, accessible technology (like their virtual reality hit Job Simulator), to build the remote work tool of their dreams – Tangle. Tangle focuses on supporting human hearts and the myriad ways people exist and maneuver through their lives, building on the principle that positive culture leads to higher productivity and more creative work.
