IMPULSE a multi-stop, multi-events Accelerator Programme that helps projects and businesses at various stages of development and creation via coaching, pitching, and matchmaking opportunities.

Initiated in 2021 and launched in 2022, IMPULSE gives the opportunity for project holders and entrepreneurs to convene at Europe’s leading XR industry conferences, festivals & markets.

Throughout the IMPULSE programme, attendees will increase their industry connections, their funding potential and further mature their projects. Content creators meet producers or distributors, entrepreneurs be confronted to investors and venture capitalists.

IMPULSE is a partnership between XR4Europe, Laval Virtual, Stereopsia EUROPE, VRDays Foundation, New Images Festival and IFFR Pro.


IMPULSE | CONTENT CREATION is an initiative that promotes and supports content creators in their quest to finance their projects.

We are looking for fictional narrative projects, or nonfiction projects with a highly creative approach. We are looking for developed ideas, i.e. a core team confirmed; some budget confirmed; and an initial strategy for marketability and distribution of the project. Above all, we are looking for artists who are dreaming with the medium, and using XR in new and exciting ways.

Ready to embark on this thrilling adventure with us? We can’t wait to see what incredible stories you have in store!
