AIXR has expanded their investor reach to over 80 firms and are sharing them for free in brand new “Guide to XR Investment”, which can help you find funding for your XR startup, project, or idea.

Over the past year, the Academy of International Extended Reality has been speaking to over 600 startups in the space all struggling to close a round of investment. The overwhelming feedback was that this was a draining process, and took them away from what they did best, creating compelling XR content.

This is where AIXR’s “Guide to Investment” comes in. A document curated from the advice of a network of over 80 investment firms looking to grow their XR portfolio, from Beat Games investors and VR / AR veterans, the “Venture Reality Fund”, to the global accelerator program enabling key innovators, “Founders Factory”.

Daniel Colaianni, CEO of AIXR, states “Our aim at AIXR is to enable our members to grow, and this has included connecting them to the best funding opportunities through investors lunches, pitch events, and more. The goal with this downloadable is to allow startups all across the globe to benefit from the specialist advice from our network.”

Not ready for investment but still looking to receive funding? AIXR also has a comprehensive funding sheet, complete with their VC network, as well as a comprehensive list of the available grants in the space and other funding revenues.
