A new way to democratize entrepreneurship and venture capital
A Silicon Valley venture capitalist has teamed up with a new show co-produced by Apple, Planet of the Apps, to invest a minimum of $10M into apps that are discovered on the show. (While some are excited about this new reality TV show, Techcrunch are distinctly unimpressed.)
Planet of the Apps isn’t just a show; it’s a launch pad and accelerator for exceptional ideas. The app creators will have a chance to receive mentorship from experts in both technology and popular culture, marketing and promotion directly through the App store, and of course, the opportunity to receive venture capital investment.
If you have a startup and are interested in being part of the show, visit www.planetoftheapps.com, and fill out the preliminary online application. You will also be asked to submit a 1-minute video introducing yourself, your app, what problem you are solving and why you want to be on the show. If the producers like your application, they will reach out directly and arrange a more in-depth FaceTime interview with you and/or your team.
