Is this an accelerator?
No. Interplay is a foundry/studio that incubates companies. The program is very hands-on and entirely customized to the needs of each company. If accelerators are a classroom, this is private tutoring.
What are we looking for when selecting companies?
We’re looking for potential - great teams and a great vision that need help getting their business to the next level. Our incubator program is designed to set companies up to scale.
What do incubator companies get?
Partner Track: One of the partners at Interplay will be personally assigned to your company. We will define a handful of specific objectives that we feel are crucial for your company’s success and personally work with you to see them through. It’s hands-on-blocking-and-tackling to set you up to scale.

Education Track: We will also put you through a personalized executive education program designed to give you the basic operational skills you will need to grow through the next steps of your business: accounting, fundraising, legal, marketing, outsourcing, etc. This will be done through a series of one-on-one meetings with CEOs of companies actively operating in these spaces.

Entrepreneur In Residence: The CEO of the company will receive the title of EIR at Interplay during the course of the program.

Perks: You’ll get access to a suite of program perks worth more than $250K, including credits & discounts at Amazon Web Services, Chelsea Capital, HubSpot, IBM, Intercom, Magic, MixPanel, Spoke, Twilio, Venwise, ZenDesk and others.
How long is the program?
Typically three months. Note that we don't do classes of companies; companies start the program on their own schedule and the program is entirely bespoke, customized to each company.
Do I need to move to New York City?
No, the program is remote with regularly scheduled video meetings with Interplay partners and advisors.
How much does the program cost?
If you are accepted into the program we typically ask for a 5% equity position in your company. The equity position may vary if companies are at different stages of development. There is no cash cost.
How much money does the incubator invest?
The incubator does not provide capital as part of the program but our venture fund reserves the right to participate in future fundraising rounds.
