One of “Rhode Island Inno’s Second-Annual 50 on Fire Award Winners”
"Sree Dasari, a high school senior, developed VadatiVR, a startup that looks to quell public speaking nervousness by giving the user a chance to practice in a VR classroom or on a stage. Since teaching herself how to code the VR software and undergoing case studies on the work, she’s gotten a lot of attention. VadatiVR won both the “Best in Fair” award at the 2018 R.I. Science and Engineering Fair and first place at the state’s first-ever Lt. Governor Entrepreneurship Challenge in August; she was also named to Rhode Island Inno’s 25 Under 25. Dasari is still hustling, “currently working on funds, developing the website and app and reaching out and trying to get more help.”"
One of “2019's Startups to Watch”
"Vadati VR is the brainchild of high school senior Sree Dasari, and the way she tells the story of its creation, it just feels like the proverbial snowball growing and growing thanks to the sheer velocity of her enthusiasm and energy. It's a startup that aims to quell public speaking nervousness by giving the user a chance to practice in a VR classroom or on a stage. Dasari taught herself how to code the VR software, has done numerous case studies to see if her work has actual merit amongst users (spoiler alert: it does), and won both the “Best in Fair” award at the 2018 R.I. Science and Engineering Fair and first place at the state’s first-ever Lt. Governor Entrepreneurship Challenge in August. Not one to sit on her numerous laurels, Dasari is "currently working on funds, developing the website and app and reaching out and trying to get more help,” she told Rhode Island Inno. This is all between registering the company as an LLC and serving as a guest speaker and writer across the state. WHEW."
