Disney Accelerator Launches 2016 Edition

Disney Accelerator LogoThe Walt Disney Company is accepting applications for its third Disney Accelerator, its Los Angeles-based program designed to accelerate the growth of media and entertainment startup companies.

Ten startup companies will be selected for a three-month mentorship and investment program, which begins this summer and closes with a Demo Day in October 2016.

Applications are due April 10, 2016.

The program is open to both early and venture-backed technology startups with a vision for making an impact on the future of media and entertainment. The accelerator provides investment capital, access to co-working space at Disney’s campus and mentor support and guidance from Disney executives, entrepreneurs, investors and other business leaders from the entertainment and technology communities.

Started in 2014, the program has accepted and supported companies with technologies as diverse as robotics, artificial intelligence, wearables, messaging and virtual reality, from across the United States, Europe and Asia (have a look at them here).
