Enter Xr nation

Starting in the spring of 2018 in Helsinki (that's Finland), the brand of XR Nation was designed to act as an identity that could bring the Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) communities in the Nordics and Baltic region closer together.

In March of 2020, the company of XR Nation was officially founded with a mission to make Europe a powerhouse of Extended Reality (XR).

In order to do this XR Nation has brought together a community​ of AR, VR, and related companies from across the region and has set up a multi-sided marketplace that does the following: 

1) help brands connect their business goals to XR technologies and help them find the best companies to work with, and

2) help our partners and members find products and services from within the ecosystem quickly, reliably, and cheaply.

We also actively support innovation and discovery through cross-industry collaboration, which is a large part of our vision.

​All in all, we are building a thriving and modern business ecosystem around the European XR industry that encourages competitiveness and trade, boosts productivity, raises quality, helps reduce prices, and improves the visibility of the sector.
