The printing press. The zoetrope. The cathode ray tube. RSS. The smartphone. Technological innovation has always played a key role in how media is created, distributed, and consumed. As technology grows ever more pervasive in our lives, its application to the world of media and entertainment has likewise broadened.

Today we are excited to announce the 2015 participants of Disney Accelerator powered by Techstars. The ten companies in this year’s program represent a diverse cross-section of technologies, and we are inspired by their visions for the applicability of these technologies in the media space.
