Helsinki XR Center opened its doors in early 2019, and after that, we have had the honour to collaborate with over a hundred organizations, offer working space, equipment and mentoring to over 30 developer hub teams, have over 3000 visits to our premises, including HXRC Showroom, and produce dozens of XR events.

During the years, HXRC has become the largest innovation, development and startup center in the Nordics dedicated to virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) technologies.

Our mission is to continue the ambassador work in the field of Finnish XR.
