LA Dodgers Accelerator Opens Apps For New Class

The LA Dodgers Sports and Entertainment Accelerator has opened up applications for a new class of startups, as the Los Angeles Dodgers and R/GA Venture said they plan to run another startup accelerator class. According to the LA Dodgers and R/GA, it will select five to seven startups in this new class, giving them access to both the executive leadership team of the Dodgers and its business units, plus access to marketing, branding, design, and technology services. Applications are being accepted through June 10th, and the program will run from August 22nd until early November. The first LA Dodgers Accelerator included ten companies. In a slight twist, the Dodgers Accelerator said that the startup teams will pitch at two, separate demo days this time--one in Los Angeles, and the other in New York.
