In honor of Women’s Equality Day, Verizon 5G Lab and the WXR Fund in partnered with Kaleidoscope and Darragh Dandur to host an interactive, immersive event.
The goal was to connect women in the XR space and provide them an opportunity to learn and discover new opportunities. It was largely attended by startup founders, creators, corporate partners, investors, and allies who support building a more inclusive ecosystem.
The event kicked off with a Showcase of projects submitted to the Femme Futures Grant and live presentations from a variety of consumer and enterprise women-led startups. People who attended the event had the chance to meet the featured creators and entrepreneurs directly as well as network with other attendees in topical conversations. These facilitated discussion topics included fundraising for startups, as well as project, design, storytelling, building partnerships, and more!
The event took place on PixelCanvas a virtual reality platform but was desktop accessible (laptops, PC and Macs).
