The idea for the VR @ MIT series was spurred by the explosion of interest in VR at MIT's annual Hacking Arts festival, which explores the intersection of the creative industries, entrepreneurship, and innovation. VR has been a fan favorite since it's inclusion in the festival in 2014. The VR @ MIT series aims to build upon that interest and help spur more startups in this quickly growing industry.

 
 

The VR series is supported by the Martin Trust Center's Creative Arts program. Read more about the Creative Arts Sector Practice program here
