Business Insider for ChoreMonster

May 26, 2015

Disney is always looking for the next big thing. 

That’s why the company is gearing up for the second annual Disney Accelerator program, a startup farm to connect founders with Disney money, Disney intellectual property, and perhaps best of all, access to Disney’s team as executive as mentors, up to and including Disney CEO Bob Iger.

In the program, which will begin its 2014 class on July 6th, 10 startups per cohort are invited to work at Disney’s Glendale campus in Southern California for 13 weeks and offered $120,000 in funding — $100,000 of which comes in a convertible note that can be changed into equity, at the startup’s choice — to build something new and cool.

 
From that first cohort, ChoreMonster, an app that encourages kids to do their chores by making it a game, is including characters from the upcoming Disney-Pixar movie Inside Out, including the voice talents of star Bill Hader.
