About Near-Life

We developed the Near-Life platform so that anyone who wants to share knowledge can do so more effectively by creating their own interactive videos and VR.

Whether you want to convey an idea; provide instructions or guidance; introduce a new product, organisation or brand, or train your team in a new skill, engagement and memorability will be key metrics.

That’s why we designed our platform with engagement and knowledge retention as a core focus. We make it easy for you to create immersive experiences by making your videos interactive. Our tool lets you take engagement to the next level and transforms the memorability of your content.

Our story

Near-Life began after Mike, our Founder, returned to the UK after completing a course known as ‘Hostile Environment Awareness Training' (HEAT) to become part of the Government’s Stabilisation Unit on returning from Kosovo for a United Nations Mission.

His main focus at that point was media production, and he wondered… could you combine something realistic with a game-like simulation, to provide a similar experience to the HEAT Course?

That, in essence, was the inception of Near-Life...
