WXR Companies

The WXR Fund hosts a virtual accelerator program comprised of a curated mentorship program, focused learning seminars, speaking and media opportunities, and a founder community framework to support pre-seed spatial computing and AI companies.

Within weeks of announcing our first accelerator applications in late 2017, our initial cohort received hundreds of applications of various industries, sizes, and stages.  All these teams had a few things in common: access to venture funding was limited based on network or geography, access to committed mentors relevant to them was missing, and access to corporate partners was challenging.

At the same time, the WXR Fund put out a call for mentors to volunteer their time and expertise with startup founders for a 10-week period. Hundreds of applicants from top companies such as Google, Microsoft, Magic Leap, Facebook, Warner Brothers, and more applied to participate as mentors to the cohort.  The mentors and start-up founders were matched, and some continue to work together today. The initial cohort kicked off with a virtual pitch showcase-- making history as one of the first-ever investing themed events held in a social VR space.  

By the end of 2018, 16 startups had completed the WXR Fund Accelerator program. These female founders’ companies range in focus from retail to education to medical to industrial industries. The WXR Accelerator founders have pitched VCs, participated in content series with industry leaders through our content and event programming, and worked with our WXR mentors to hone their business models and continue evolving as strong leaders.
