The WXR Venture Fund
We're thrilled to announce the 1st WXR Founder Cohort, featuring eight of the top women Founders in the immersive tech industry and their startups across the spectrum of virtual reality and augmented reality.
On Jan. 6th, we held the inaugural WXR Pitch Showcase to highlight our first Cohort.
Our Founders are a well-rounded group with a variety of focuses— from combining brain control interfaces with VR for wellness, to creating the world's first search engine for immersive content, to using AR to accelerate skill sets and reduce costs in the construction industry.
We threw the Pitch Showcase event in social VR venue Altspace and live streamed in 2D on YouTube— so that anyone with or without a VR headset could join.
Check out the highlight video below.
