CEO of KIT-AR, Manuel Oliveira: “The navigation of the accelerator landscape is difficult and plagued with uncertainty, with very few accelerators being worthy landmarks to consider when charting the path to success. The NXS is one of the precious few that delivers on the promise to advance the growth of a start-up, being an essential choice when working in the XR domain. The range and quality of NXS ecosystem is astounding, giving access to world renown XR stakeholders with a combined wealth of experience and expertise that is mind boggling. The richness of the NXS network is only surpassed by the quality and dedication of their team, who have become key collaborators with the drive of making KIT-AR a recognisable beacon in the digital transformation of the manufacturing shopfloor.”
