The 2018 CR AR VR Pitch-Fest event will feature presentations by up to 16 start-up and early-stage augmented reality or virtual reality companies. The chosen companies will present to panels of judges representing angel investors, venture capitalists, major corporations, health care institutions and governmental entities who have an interest in the VR/AR industry space. The event provides a year’s worth of key contacts in one day for the selected companies.
Companies featured at the Pitch-Fest will learn more about the details of the 2018 CR AR VR Accelerator and have the ability to interact with members of the Selection Committee for the upcoming 2018 cohort which should provide them with a leg-up in the selection process.
