As co-founder of Rokoko, Matias Søndergaard identified a clear market need for more accessible 3D animation tools, believing creatives around the world should not be disadvantaged only based on space and money. With this mindset, Søndergaard spearheaded the creation of Rokoko’s body, finger, and face capture systems, enabling indie creators to seamlessly create full performance capture movement in real-time to support pre-visualization and 3D character animation for movies and video games. Interested in disruptive and transformative phenomena in the tech world, Søndergaard specializes in commercializing and transforming bold ideas into prosperous businesses. Matias Søndergaard has a M.Sc. in Economics and Philosophy and wrote his thesis on the democratization of 3D printers.
