The winning submissions will undergo an intensive four-month process to help launch their creations with help from a board of advisors including Bruce Croxon, co-founder, Round13 Capital; Shawn Hardin, entrepreneur in residence, Bessemer Venture Partners; David Gale, executive VP, MTVX at MTV Networks, Paul Woolner founder, 4Sight Partners, and Andrew Bailey, chairman, North America, Proximity.

“With the necessary tools, strategic advice, and access to a global entertainment industry network, nothing will stop these promising digital entertainment players from taking their ideas to the next level.” said Ana Serrano, chief digital officer at CFC.
