Vive X: Here Are The 33 VR Startups HTC Vive Just Funded
HTC’s Vive X accelerator program is welcoming more than 30 new VR and AR startups to the fold with investments in North America and Asia.
The companies join the inaugural group of 33 startups funded in July last year. This second batch represents the latest group backed by HTC’s growing VR arm, which is investing in a broad range of teams working on hardware, content and services that could be important to the future of mixed reality.
Many of the startups joined the accelerator for strategic reasons and are more advanced than those typically seen in these types of programs, according to Vive X.
“We work hard to provide service to these companies, rather than just a check,” said Marc Metis, global head of Vive X. For example, “we can help provide access to the China market.”
HTC Vive’s investment group also said it planned to open an accelerator in Israel, joining locations in San Francisco, Beijing, Shenzhen and Taipei. The list below provided by Vive X outlines the companies included in this newest batch.
PlusOne is an AR + AI startup creating interactive intelligent human holograms which can be used by enterprises to train their employees to interact more effectively with customers.
