BURBANK, California — A game that teaches children to code. An app guaranteed to make your kids do chores. Your selfies, burning up the dance floor.
These were just a few of the ideas pitched Tuesday at the Disney Accelerator’s inaugural demo night, the grand pageant at the end of the media giant’s first startup incubator. Focused on entertainment and media entrepreneurs, the 15-week program took on 10 early-stage startups, gave each a seed investment of up to $ 120,000 and offered “mentor support” from CEO Bob Iger and dozens of other Disney executives.
