Espin VR Opens in Mishawaka, IN!

Category: Success Stories

Launching the most advanced virtual reality center in the greater South Bend area, Espin VR opened their family friendly entertainment center at 605 W Edison Rd Ste K, in Mishawaka, IN. Espin VR is owned by Pokagon Tribal Citizens Matt and Micky Martin. “Espin in the Potawatomi language means raccoon.” explained Micky. “Raccoons’ mischievous and curious nature is the perfect word to illustrate the experience that our VR center will provide!”

The Martins were ready for their entrepreneurial journey!   With backgrounds in gaming, hospitality and computer science, they presented their idea to Executive Director Sean Winters at Chi Ishobak. “We met with Sean and he directed us to the right program. We worked with Carolyn Rourke, their Small Business Development Specialist for coaching on our business plan and setting up funding” says Matt. “They really helped us understand the business side of providing a high- end entertainment venue.”

Espin VR even got the attention of WNDU’s Melissa Stephens, who stopped by to check the place out for an early morning segment! Click HERE to check it out!
