Helsinki XR Center developer hub application

COVID-disclaimer 2021: Due to ongoing circumstances, most of Helsinki XR Center's teams have been working remotely since March 2020. The hub program will start remotely for new joiners in 2021, easing teams into the process with remote coaching, events and networking.

It will take some time before we can all meet again safely face to face and return to the former glory of community life within the walls of Helsinki XR Center, along with our full XR hub offering. Still, we can find ways to help emerging XR startups in this situation with a remote program. Case by case evaluations of workspace and hardware needs will also be taken into account, evaluated and facilitated within limits of safe and healthy conduct.

The hub program will resume in its usual form (described below) once it is deemed safe. We're looking forward to working at the hub every day and casually meeting all the cool inhabitants of Helsinki XR Center in the hallways, kitchen, offices and showroom.


Helsinki XR Center (HXRC) offers shared work space and equipment for teams, companies and individuals in their early phase of development of Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality or Mixed Reality projects.

We are in it for the revolution. We want to help you: artists, technologists, thinkers and entrepreneurs to create solutions that dare to imagine what kind of meaning immersive technology could and should convey for the human being.

What we look for in a team:
- Fresh, smart and fearless ideas for AR and VR solutions that drive the field forward. Relevant skills to realise those ideas.
- Fire and dedication to develop your vision and skills, hunger to excel.
- Willingness to learn from others and help others learn from you. An open mind that contributes to the community.
- Need of resources: the more you can benefit from our program, the better.
- Devotion of time to the project and getting things done.

What we offer:
- 1000 square meters of comfortable and modern office space.
- Quality shared equipment from workstations to XR devices.
- State of the art showroom space for audience, customer, investor showcases.
- Active and encouraging developer community to become a part of.
- Events all around the year for meeting peers, mentors, enthusiasts and collaborators.
- Coaching and contacts for business development, tech, creative, funding experts.

Using the space and its equipment does not cost anything nor bind the team in any way. All the work and rights to it stay within the developing team.

Our development program is based on a periodical, peer reviewed format with individual goals for each team and project.

1: A three-month trial period where the central idea of your vision is fleshed out. Can you show the skill and resolve to produce something concrete?
2: A six-month extension period where minimum viable product/project is established and the team takes shape.
3: Case-by-case extension periods depending on development situation, team viability, progress and potential.

So send your application our way and become a part of Europe’s leading XR hub!
