The VR Awards are one of the most prestigious awards in the immersive technology space, dedicated to achievement in virtual reality (VR). Now the organisers of the VR Awards are working with companies and brands including AWE, Super Ventures and Digital Catapult to launch the inaugural VR Awards Investors Lunch which will precede the Awards ceremony.
The VR Awards is recognised as one of the largest events celebrating achievement in VR, and combines the awards ceremony and dinner with year-round initiatives to promote VR and immersive technology.
The Investors Lunch will take place at 12:30pm on Tuesday 16th October and will be an exclusive event for international technology investors. The lunch will provide an opportunity for guests to meet with other investors and discuss investment funds and strategies as well as broker new deals. After the lunch, investors are invited to the VR Awards ceremony.
Executive producer of the VR Awards, Daniel Colaianni: “At the VR Awards, we endeavour to push the boundaries of what we can achieve, both in Virtual Reality and in reality. This is the logical next step in evolving our brand further and creating a greater conversation about what is possible in the world of XR.”
Tom Emrich of Super Ventures commented: “Events like the VR Awards and the Investors’ Lunch are critical to the overall success of the XR (AR/VR/MR) industry, especially at such an early stage. We are proud to support an event that brings startups and investors together to encourage investment in this next wave of computing.”
Rebecca Gregory-Clarke, Lead Technologist, Immersive Technology, at Digital Catapult added: “We’re pleased to support the Investors Lunch, bringing together international investors to encourage and stimulate investment into leading-edge immersive technology. This builds on our work, through our Augmentor programme, of helping innovative and commercially-focused immersive companies with technical and business mentorship, access to state-of-the-art facilities and support to pitch their ideas to investors.”
