The XR Tech Venture Forum brings together entrepreneurs, investors (individual, corporate, business angel, or VC), corporates, & other stakeholders interested in immersive-technology products & services. The forum will select up to around 12 entrepreneurs of start-ups or emerging companies that have a relevant project with sufficient maturity and seeking an additional 0.5 to 2 million € to reach market. The selected entrepreneurs will benefit from a special mentorship course, a chance to pitch their project to a jury made up of the selected investors, corporates, and other stakeholders, and One2One meetings with them. Best performed 4 companies from the XR Tech Venture Forum will be invited to present at Tech Tour flagship event - European Venture Contest Final (EVC Final) taking place in December 2019.
Once again, the focus of the XR Tech Venture Forum is immersive technologies & services, i.e. VR, AR, MR, XR, 3D/depth, 3D sound, etc.
