Who Are We?

WXR invests in early stage companies that are transforming businesses and human interaction by leveraging spatial computing and artificial intelligence. We partner with women leaders and their teams who are changing the way products are built and companies are run. The WXR Fund is at the intersection of the unique convergence of these growing areas. Fund Description The WXR Fund invests in early stage companies with female leadership that are building businesses based on spatial computing and artificial intelligence. This is the ideal time to invest in these areas. Similar to the broad impact of the internet, spatial computing will be the next way we will communicate and consume digital content. Combined with the power of artificial intelligence, new companies will be created and most industries will be transformed. At the same time, there is a vast opportunity to invest in female founders that are being overlooked and over-performing. Female leaders are also critical to providing a diverse approach to building successful products supported by exceptional teams. The WXR Fund is the only venture firm at the intersection of these two opportunities. They have an active startup pipeline, are trusted by entrepreneurs, and are regarded as leaders in the space. Why investing in women is important The best products and most enduring startups are built by diverse teams. Women bring different perspectives than their male counterparts, and a robust body of research demonstrates that companies with women in leadership produce stronger financial returns.
