In the world of entertainment, it’s not just about keeping up with trends — it’s also about seeking the next big thing.

That’s what George Kliavkoff had in mind in September when he took the helm at the virtual-reality studio Jaunt.

Kliavkoff will speak at Business Insider’s flagship conference, IGNITION: Future of Digital, and tell us why VR is the future of video.

He’s in a good position to know¬†what’s exciting about the technology. So far, three-year-old Jaunt has raised $100 million from investors such as Disney and Sky. It even launched a VR enterprise in China.

Now, with Kliavkoff running the show, things look promising for the studio, which aims to provide consumers with a truly immersive cinematic experience.

Jaunt isn’t just about bringing a new form of storytelling to the forefront — its focuses include content production, distribution, and monetizing VR content. If you’re trying to read the tea leaves on this technology, it’s an operation to watch.

Don’t miss Kliavkoff at IGNITION, December 5-7, at the Time Warner Center in New York City. This year’s IGNITION speakers include YouTube’s Neal Mohan, NextVR’s Brad Allen, Baobab Studios’ Maureen Fan, and 20th Century Fox’s Ted Schilowitz.
