(ComputerWeekly)  Innovation center Digital Catapult wants to accelerate AR and VR startups to long-term success. Thus it has invited ten augmented reality and virtual reality startups to join its 10-week Augmentor accelerator, with access to classes, facilities and mentorship. Augmentor’s aim is to prepare the startups for an investor pitching event in September 2018, and interested parties have until May 23 to apply.
Digital Catapult’s head of immersive, Aurelien Simon, said program will overcome the barriers that often stop AR and VR startups developing into commercial businesses. “Early-stage AR and VR companies are often formed by innovators, investors and creators,” he said. “They are experts in their field, but may not be as experienced in business. We see it as our role to bridge this divide and help these companies turn their great ideas into great business.”
