During the XR Week 2021 Volucap took part in a panel discussion on XR Startups and spread the word about the technology of volumetric capture. Recently many acquisitions have changed the XR market. Within this dynamic environment, startups are seeking funding and technology partnerships, whereas corporates and investors are trying to find the most innovative and scalable startups.

The panel, consisting of Jorian Bos (Senior Enterprise Innovation Consultant at EIT Digital), Patrick Schreiber (Senior Innovation Manager at Deutsche Telekom), Olaf Joeressen (Senior Investment Manager at High-Tech Gründerfonds), Max Noelle (CEO & Founder at WeAre GmbH), and Sven Bliedung von der Heide (CEO at Volucap GmbH) addressed the key issues for the dynamic XR startup ecosystem and discussed questions like: Which programs and platforms do exist and for whom are they relevant? Which challenges are corporates, investors, and startups faced with and how can they be tackled?

New Year – New Perspectives

Under the motto “New Year – New Perspectives”, this time the XR EXPO has been turned into an XR WEEK: from 17 to 21 May 2021, the participants were invited to immerse themselves in a virtual XR world, to inform themselves online about the latest developments in the fields of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Mixed Reality, to exchange ideas, to network and to arrange personal appointments with interesting fellow participants. They experienced live lectures, demos, and discussions from a wide range of organizations.
