Updated: Jul 20, 2021

Written By: Eddie Avil




Over the years i have seen a few lists of Top 50 XR Influencers, but the curators of those list always overlooked China/India/Asia's XR Industry.


Just for Context the worlds current population is 7 Billion, India & China's Collective population is 2.7 Billion & mind you i haven't added the overall population of #asia.......Ignore us at your own risk #facebook #microsoft & the curators of those lists.


China’s XR Industry has been growing rapidly and so is India’s, In the year 2015 India had under 10 XR Startups, today we have over 2000 XR focussed Startups in the Country.

China-India & the other Asian Nations have some really interesting #augmentedreality #virtualreality #mixedreality #startups Innovating across Hardware, Software & Content.


Creating a list of #top50 #extendedreality Leaders from Asia/Asian Origin wasn’t a tit for tat response but a genuine desire to showcase the diverse & hardworking XR Entrepreneurs, Startups, Evangelists & Investors who the world should know.

There are so many great XR entrepreneurs, startups of Asian Origin that it is impossible to make a single 50 Best list, will try and curate a quarterly list of the Top 50 Asian XR leaders,

If you believe you deserve to be on the list then do dm me your profile on LinkedIn and will be a pleasure to mention you on the 2nd list.

More Power, Success & Funding Support to the Asian XR Ecosystem.
