Nike's mission is to bring motivation and inspiration to every athlete* in the world (*If you have a body, you're an athlete). Nike+ launched in 2006 as a collection of digitally enabled products and services to motivate all athletes to exceed their potential.
We are looking for people who share this vision and want to create companies that build upon the success of NikeFuel, the Nike+ FuelBand, and Nike+ Running to make the world more active.
The Nike+ Accelerator, powered by TechStars, will host 10 companies for a three-month, immersive, mentor-driven startup accelerator. The focus is to allow companies to leverage the Nike+ platform, and NikeFuel, to build offerings that inspire and assist people to live more active, healthy lifestyles.
Support As You Go
10 partner companies will be chosen and given the tools and support they need to succeed:
Real Access to Decision Makers
At the end of the Nike+ Accelerator, each team will present to Nike executives, mentors, angel investors, venture capitalists, and tech industry leaders.
Who can apply? Anyone with an idea that uses Nike+ technology and data to help people be more active. Examples include:
If it helps people to be more active, we want to hear about it.
Nike+ data helps athletes know more - and do more. The Nike+ platform gives select partners access to the activity data captured by the Nike+ FuelBand and Nike+ Running devices used by millions of Nike+ users. How to use this platform to change the world? That’s up to you.
