HTC announced today that it's taking applications for an accelerator program focused on virtual reality innovation.
Accelerators like HTC's Vive X offer monetary and non-monetary assistance to startups to incubate their ideas. Competitive programs like Y Combinator take the best seed ideas and fund them toward success, in exchange for a share of equity. Think Shark Tank with tech ideas. HTC's Vive X works the same way, but focuses on developing VR ideas, apps, and games.
HTC released its $800 Vive VR headset earlier this month. The company is now hoping to bring together talent in the field with accelerator offices in Taipei, Beijing, and San Francisco.
Vive X is open to all applicants who have a passion and an idea in mind to help HTC take the lead in the virtual reality market. You can start your application here.
