“[O]ur shared experience of living in the midst of a pandemic [has], in many ways, emboldened leaders in XR to discover new ways for people to connect.”
– AUREA Award Jury Member Kathleen Cohen

On January 21st and 22nd 2022 co-founders Stefan Marx and Anne-Sophie Panzer attended the 4th annual AUREA Award to compete with 9 other German startups in a pitching competition held at Europa-Park. As self-described, “AUREA is the leading European conference in VR, AR, XR, MR, and immersive entertainment. It’s a global community of leaders at the intersection of immersive technology, a forum for creators to build the products of tomorrow, and a space for for innovators to interact, engage, and learn.” The two-day conference consisted of live music, panels, and networking events, culminating in each startup pitching to a live-streamed jury, hoping to land an award in the four categories, Innovation, Interaction, Experience, and Impact.

Stefan Marx presented for ZAUBAR, and received positive and constructive feedback from the jury. Although ZAUBAR wasn’t chosen for an award, we’d like to extent our warmest congratulations to the winners of the 4th AUREA Award!
