Companies in the accelerator get space in Disney’s Glendale, Calif. campus and a small amount of investment capital.

Some previous graduates from the company’s accelerator include Epic Games, the maker of Unreal Engine and the creator of Fortnite; Epic Games joined the Disney Accelerator in 2017 (the same year that Fortnite launched).

The game-based learning platform Kahoot! joined the Disney Accelerator in 2017, and last year more than 200 million games were played on Kahoot! by 1.2 billion players in 200 countries. Its participation in the program has enabled Kahoot! to pair educational content with Disney brands such as Star Wars in order to better reach educators and youth across the globe, as well as support the goals of the Disney Youth Program to engage educator and student audiences with fun, educational content connected to Disney parks.

The Disney Accelerator co-working space is located in greater Los Angeles, the heart of the entertainment industry. Participating companies will not need to be in the Disney Accelerator co-working space the entire summer, just at the start of the program, for select meetings and at Demo Day.

Walt Disney had a dream, and the entrepreneurial will to make that dream come true. Combining creativity and innovation, he built a company that is forever inventing new ways to tell great stories. From the Multiplane camera and the first feature-length animated film to Audio-Animatronics® and computer-generated animation, Disney has always been at the forefront of technology.
