WELCOME TO THE CLEVELAND CHAPTER OF THE GLOBAL ASSOCIATION FOR VR AND AR

CLEVR Community is the founding member of the Cleveland Ohio Chapter of the VRARA. CLEVR is the community arm of The Cleveland Vision, 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.

Cleveland led the nation in per capita technology patent development at the dawn of the 21st century. We believe in a future where a cauldron of innovation churns once again in Northeast Ohio. To that end CLEVR Community 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.

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.
