Swipe Right to Like: Finding Immersive Funding

Learning lessons from the modern dating playbook, this session will ask leading investors in XR whether they’ll “swipe right” on a trio of very different immersive projects from small-scale early-stage investment, to large multimillion dollar investments from the UK’s $40m Audience of the Future Demonstrator Programme.

A Tinder-style panel will quiz funders on whether they would part with cash and explain why. We’ll discover their take on three very different projects and their investment priorities to better understand whats the trigger for a like or a pass?

This panel includes funders from across the globe from federal funders, private / public partnerships, strategic corporate venture and the innovation arms of major studios.
