ANNOUNCING OUR INAUGURAL VIRTUAL PITCH ShOWCASE:
january 6th, 2018
Let's start the new year off with a bang.
We're kicking off the first in a quarterly series of virtual pitch events. Apply here for a chance to pitch your immersive tech startup to a panel of venture capitalists and industry experts!
Some theories say that female founders tend to not get raw, honest feedback during fundraising due to the fact that they're probably pitching to men: over 90% of venture capitalists are male.
The WXR Fund's virtual pitch events help female founders get authentic feedback from investors as well as connect with other women leaders and participate in a positive and inclusive community.
In the spirit of global inclusivity, this Pitch Showcase will be virtual. We're currently considering potential social VR partners. Interested in sponsoring? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
LAUNCHING THE WXR FUND MENTORSHIP BETA PROGRAM:
Women make up only 20% of the tech industry, and often have less access to mentors.
We're pairing up-and-coming women in immersive tech with mentors for quarterly-long mentorship commitments. Apply here for a chance to participate in the beta launch of our WXR Mentorship Program!
The WXR Fund's mentorship program helps connect women in the VR/AR/XR industry with mentors to expand networks, give guidance, and accelerate success.
