The Hangzhou Future Sci-Tech City in Hangzhou, capital of East China's Zhejiang province, plans to help five extended reality companies go public, and incubate or attract 300 extended reality-related companies over the next five years, according to the incubator's recently released plan.

According to the officials of the sci-tech city, the Hangzhou Future Sci-Tech City now has over 70 extended reality-related companies, including BOE Yiyun Technology Co Ltd, Lingban Technology Co and Hangzhou Pimax Intelligent Technology Co Ltd.
The plan signals the sci-tech city's ambition to lead the development of Zhejiang's extended reality industry, said the administration of the sci-tech city. The administration added that they hope to build Yuhang district into a powerhouse for the country's extended reality industry.
