Leap Venture Studio Accepting Applications for Third Cohort
Leap Venture Studio, a startup accelerator in the pet care industry, is accepting applications for its third cohort now through Oct. 31.
Each cohort consists of six to eight companies that work with the Leap partners in the studio for 12 weeks. The program is based in Los Angeles but does not require participants to be present for its entirety, company officials said.
The Leap Venture Studio culminates in a live-pitch event where Studio companies pitch to investors, industry leaders and the startup community. Studio companies receive an investment of up to $200,000 if selected into the program.
Participants will be announced Dec. 2. The program starts Feb. 10, 2020 with demo day set for May 7, 2020.
Application details, along with previous Leap Venture Studio companies, can be found here.
Leap Ventures was founded by Michelson Found Animals and Kinship, a division of Mars Pet Care, as a way to support the latest innovations in the pet industry. Leap Venture Studio is supported by R/GA, a services platform that connects startups with award-winning strategists, technologists, designers and consultants.
