Derek Belch
As founder and CEO, Derek leads the vision and strategy behind Strivr’s mission to elevate performance through immersive experience. Derek incubated the company with co-founder Jeremy Bailenson in Stanford’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab while pursuing his Masters in Virtual Reality and serving as a graduate assistant football coach. Using sports as his proving ground, Derek’s vision quickly expanded from the athlete to the enterprise. Derek is driven by a competitive passion for impacting performance, and with STRIVR, is pushing everyone to train like an athlete.
