    Description:

    The Disney Accelerator is a program powered by Techstars that seeks to select ten startup companies for a three-month mentorship and seed-stage investment program. Participants receive $120,000 in investment capital to develop their ideas, along with mentor support from top Disney executives, including Chairman and CEO Robert A. Iger, and leaders from Pixar, Marvel, Lucasfilm, ESPN and Walt Disney Imagineering, among others. Mentors also include other entertainment industry leaders, venture capitalists, and Techstars' extensive network of entrepreneurs, investors and executives. Participants will have access to stories, characters, technology and other resources from across The Walt Disney Company. The accelerator program concludes with an Investor Demo Day where each team will present their company to industry leaders and investors. Disney Accelerator is now accepting applications from early-stage companies with innovative consumer media and entertainment product ideas.
