HTC discovers Europe
The HTC Corporation (HTC) has appointed Dave Haynes as director of Vive X Europa. The position was created because of the inclusion of European startups in HTC Vive’s USD 100 million VR/AR accelerator programme.
London, alongside Taipei, Beijing, Shenzhen, San Francisco and Tel Aviv, will be the sixth and newest location of the startup financier and hub for VR/AR companies.
Vive X London, which will accept applications from the whole of Europe, will visit cities such as London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam and Helsinki, in order to meet potential candidates for the programme.
Worldwide, Vive X has already invested in more than 80 enterprises in important sectors such as education, healthcare, medicine and entertainment. (cd)
