Augmented Reality for Enterprise Alliance

Membership Options for Augmented Reality Start-Ups

Startups are amazing.  Their energy, passion and enthusiasm are palpable.  They have innovative technology that the world is waiting for. But many startups are crying out for a firm footing, a leg-up, an audience, and a network of trusted established influencers who have been there and done that.

If you’re a startup in Augmented Reality seeking to make connections with established industry leaders and prospective enterprise customers, it’s time for you to consider joining an alliance that offers exactly that – and a whole lot more.

The Augmented Reality for Enterprise Alliance (the AREA) is the only global funded membership alliance working to accelerate the adoption of Enterprise Augmented Reality (AR) by creating a comprehensive ecosystem.

AREA membership offers you an opportunity to network with other people in the AR industry and to reach prospective enterprise customers that are planning to invest – or already investing – in AR.

To join the AREA as a Startup member, your organization must meet the following criteria:

The AREA Startup membership package is only available for a two-year period. After the two years have elapsed, your company must choose a Contributor or Sponsor membership to continue as an AREA member.
