Gravity Sketch

Gravity Sketch is building ‘Adobe Creative Suite for our augmented and virtual realities’ - helping major enterprises design products at the scale they’ll be used, both more efficiently and collaboratively. Forward has supported the team from seed stage, equipping a world class product team with a world class sales capability.

Whilst much of the emerging VR/AR trend focuses on consumer applications, the $6.3B automotive enterprise software market is already investing in technology to support more efficient and higher quality collaboration for its teams.

WHERE IT BEGAN

Let’s design the future

Seyi, a design engineer, and Daniela, an industrial designer, are the perfect founding team for this product and company. The two met whilst studying at the RCA, then spent two years working together at Jaguar Land Rover - where Gravity Sketch was just a passion project.

Introduced to the team by our network, we were overcome both by what they’d achieved with such finite resources, but also their grand vision for the future of design. Our in-house capability in growth and sales made Forward not only a clear value add to the team, but an obvious choice to lead their round.

Growing up for growth

The team had done an exceptional job on sales before being funded by Forward, but with Seyi needing to now focus on his leadership role as CEO, it became important to formalise a sales capability in the team.

Forward placed an enterprise sales coach at Gravity Sketch - who helped the team understand their value prop and the role of sales - then working closely with the team to build out the materials required to guide and inform the practices of future sales hires.

Forward worked with the Gravity Sketch team and used our extensive network to help them identify and make key sales hires, quickly leading to building out a portfolio of big brand clients.

“Working with FP’s enterprise sales coach was the most formative intervention we made in 2018. We’d spent two years building a world-class product but the months of workshops, developing our sales playbook helped us to step-up our sales operation”

Seyi Sosanya, co-founder

“The team at Forward understand the importance of the creative economy and took great effort to learn more about our ambitions to revolutionise a space that hasn't seen a true design intervention in decades.”
