Following the success of its pilot Accelerator last year, Dogfish announced the launch of the second cycle of Dogfish Accelerator, a comprehensive development financing program that offers funding, mentorship, and partnership opportunities. The program will provide $10,000 to each candidate or team to establish initial financing and will offer business development and networking support over a nine-week period, from September 22 to November 19, 2014, at the company's headquarters in New York City.
Dogfish Accelerator is seeking entrepreneurs who are looking to turn their dream project into a reality - no matter how big or small, be it a groundbreaking feature film or an in-your-face Vine series. Last year's cycle selected eight teams of content creators out of nearly 500 applications from around the world. Selected candidates developed such exciting projects as a digital comedy brand with viral web content (Auralnauts), a 3D transmedia children's film and tablet video game (MAX & CHARLIE), and a feature film that will incorporate an event tour, live music, shareable GIFs and experimental media (LIKE ME).
