Program Details


Each week, the Media Camp team and mentors will present a workshop topic and open discussion. Participating companies will have the opportunity to meet with mentors on the workshop nights and in one-on-one sessions. In addition, we will host weekly dinner events and other networking opportunities with industry experts.


Funding Details

Each participating company will receive an initial $20,000 investment with no minimum percentage of equity, unlike other accelerators. If you have an open note or round we just become another investor. Throughout the program, there is also potential for commercial agreements.

Demo Day

At the culmination of the program, Media Camp hosts a Demo Day event open to venture capitalists, Angels, press, and media and technology industry leaders. Each participating company will work toward presenting at Demo Day. This is your chance to raise additional money, find potential customers, and raise additional awareness about your company.


All Media Camp events will be held in the San Francisco or Los Angeles area either at our offices or nearby sites. Participants are responsible for their own housing. If you are in need of office space we can provide co-working and shared office spaces for the duration of the program.
