WHY - IMPULSE wants your project to hit its target and make ripples

 Europe counts some of the best creative studios, research institutions, and is a thriving field for entrepreneurs. Its multicultural XR professionals need the support to help their talent blossom and succeed beyond disciplines and boarders.

IMPULSE fosters European actors of the immersive tech scene to shape a strong industry, led by ambitious and talented people.

WHAT - IMPULSE offers a singular, multi-partners’ journey

With believers of immersive contents and technologies, XR4Europe created a partnership called IMPULSE: A multi-stop, multi-events Accelerator Programme that helps projects and businesses at various stages of development and creation via coaching, pitching, and matchmaking opportunities.

Initiated in 2021 and launched in 2022, IMPULSE gives the opportunity for project holders and entrepreneurs to convene at Europe’s leading XR industry conferences & markets.

Depending on your project’s vertical and stage, and upon selection, you will be accepted to follow dedicated sessions or showcase at some of Europe’s most established XR conferences, festivals, and markets:

Content Creation => The Booster at Stereopsia, Immersive Tech Week by VR Days, CineMart at IFFR Pro, New Images Festival
Entrepreneurship => Laval Virtual, XR4Europe’s Annual Conference at Stereopsia, Immersive Tech Week by VR Day
