Startups

Come out!

We help research projects and early stage startups, test, scale and fund their ideas in San Francisco. Through matchmaking with local industry experts, technology partners, mentors and investors, you will receive fast and valuable inputs to make your next moves.

 

We look for creative approaches that show the potential of new interactive technologies like AR, VR, MR, BCI, AI, Robotics and Human-Machine interfaces. We focus on projects, tools, or platforms that lower the barrier of entry and give more people access.

Our program is individual and tailored to your needs. Depending on your stage we will select you for our Testing Lab (University projects or very early stage StartUp) or the Scaling Lab. We want to spend time with you and that’s why we take only 6-10 startups a year. You can apply online anytime.
