The NoitomVR Lab has two programs — the INCUBATOR and the ACCELERATOR.

The INCUBATOR program invites teams and individuals working in their free time on a VR project. Most of our INCUBATOR members were invited following our annual Japan VR Hackathon which brings in more than 500 participants each year for a 48 hour coding fest. The length of the INCUBATOR membership is usually 3 months — during which they must create a polished proof of concept VR experience.

The ACCELERATOR program focuses on providing logistics support to VR star-ups by giving them access to equipment, workspace and mentorship. With the help of partners we also guide them towards funding resources. ACCELERATOR members get full access to our space for a length of time based on their needs.
