Vive X Report Highlights Continued Strength of Investments in UK XR Tech

Jun 7, 2021

Share Today, HTC Vive in collaboration with Immerse UK have released the UK Immersive Tech: VC Investment Report , providing a deep-dive into 31 XR startups who have managed to raise significant amounts of investment. The report not only looks at how some of these companies achieved their success in a difficult market but also highlights investor interest in enterprise-focused technology. Investment in the XR industry has ebbed and flowed over the years with significant interest in and around 2016, whilst a couple of years later it declined due to the initial hype wearing off. Yet initiatives like HTC Vive’s Vive X programme has continued throughout, supporting over 100 companies in the process. In this first report, Vive X and Immerse UK have produced looking at the UK’s immersive sector and how despite the pandemic have managed to thrive. “Firstly, despite its drawbacks for the overall economy, the immersive sector has been well placed to benefit from the global pandemic. Lockdowns all over the world have led to consumers looking to virtual worlds to spend more of their leisure time and connect with others,” says Dave Haynes, Director of Development Ecosystem & Vive X EMEA in the report. “Whilst, workers and their employers have thrown out old ways of working, turning to technologies such as VR to collaborate, design together or host and attend virtual events.” Regular readers of VRFocus will notice some very familiar names among those listed, each involved in very different segments of the industry. Anything World , for example, enables creators to bring 3D models to life simply using their voice, whilst Bodyswaps focuses on soft skills training , its most recent module is a job interview simulator.
