In what’s becoming a frenetic spring for BitTorrent, the company has launched its own accelerator scheme for startups. “We’re opening up our innovation lab to new media startups. If you have a publicly available product in sound, film, live streaming, media sharing, or peer-to-peer technologies, we’ll work with you to accelerate your idea’s success,” explains the company in a blog post. “Qualified applicants will receive an initial assessment of their service against our product vision and market. Select participants will get to user-test product ideas with over 170 million BitTorrent users. They’ll also receive advertising and product placement within the BitTorrent ecosystem, as well as potential partnership, investment, and acquisition opportunities.” It’s the latest accelerator scheme coming from an unexpected quarter, although we’ve yet to see any major labels dive in to this space, as we were hoping.
