The Xperience Accelerator has been established to drive mixed reality innovations by pairing forward thinking start-ups with support from forward thinking companies such as Village Roadshow and Microsoft Australia.

Village Roadshow and Collective Campus are offering an end-to-end innovation program for Mixed Reality (AR/VR) entertainment startups, culminating in a 13-week Accelerator that will equip you with the knowledge, tools, funding opportunities and support to give your idea the best chance of success.
