CLEVR WANTS TO GROW THE VRBELT
CLEVR is a nonprofit organization launched in the fall of 2016 with a mission to improve Cleveland's socioeconomic conditions by channeling the ingenuity of Clevelanders towards the creation of high demand AR/VR based content, products and services. To that end CLEVR Community, our public face, hosts meetups, workshops, hackathons and conferences that promote awareness and education of experiential technologies across our city. We partner with regional and global associations, companies and academic institutions to ensure that our community has access to next generation technology, industry experts and investors.
WE BUILD BRIDGES NOT BORDERS
CLEVR is a community of inclusion open to anyone with a desire to learn more about the power of AR/VR experiences to improve lives both at play and at work. We believe Cleveland has ample talent and potential to build and sustain its own vibrant ecosystem of AR/VR focused entrepreneurs and companies ranging from indie to startup to enterprise. These technologies should be accessible to all Clevelanders regardless of socioeconomic background or technical acumen.
Promote, coordinate and expand opportunities in the field of AR/VR and interconnected technology through a growing network of local talent, enterprise, industry, and academia.
Promote public understanding of AR/VR and how this technology will affect the way we live, work, and entertain.
Promote community stabilization and revitalization of the divested neighborhoods of Greater Cleveland, with emphasis on Experience Age opportunities.
Harness the connective power of AR/VR technologies as a bridge to connect diverse cultural centers
