The WXR Venture Fund
The WXR Fund invests in startups in the XR industry that are committed to balanced gender representation. We also provide community infrastructure to support women leaders in immersive tech.
Our investment thesis is rooted in both social and economic impact. We aim to build a more inclusive industry from the ground up as well as leverage the unique economic opportunities created by current demographic imbalances.
We just announced the 2nd WXR Cohort! Meet the WXR Founders here.
Only 2% of venture capital was invested in female founders in 2017.
We must do better.
The emerging immersive tech industry is predicted to become a $100B+ industry over the next several years. We have an enormous opportunity to level the playing field.
Our robust programming amplifies our investment impact:
WXR Pitch Showcases
Curated WXR Mentorship Program
Educational content and industry news
This All-Female Founders Pitch Event Was Held in VR
WXR Mentorship Program
Women make up only 20% of the tech industry, and often have less access to mentors. We've paired the Founders in our 1st WXR Cohort with Mentors for quarterly-long mentorship commitments.
The WXR Fund's Mentorship Program helps connect women in VR/AR/XR industry with mentors to expand networks, give guidance, and accelerate success.
