A Message from our CEO
Today, The Walt Disney Company announced participants in the 2017 Disney Accelerator—a program that provides entrepreneurs with mentorship and immersion into the media and entertainment industry—and THE VOID is honored to join the prestigious program.
Our team at THE VOID has created something amazing. And we could not be more honored to have that hard work and vision noticed by Disney. We’re thrilled to have this opportunity to work alongside these innovators who share our passion to create magical and memorable entertainment attractions.
Since the Disney Accelerator started in 2014, companies representing cutting edge entertainment, media and technology—like Sphero, Littlestar, Jaunt and littleBits—have been accepted into the program. The three-month mentorship connects participants from around the world with Disney’s creative experts and resources to help them develop their products and consumer experiences.
As a veteran of the entertainment industry, I can say that the integrity, innovation, and magic of The Walt Disney Company is unparalleled. I’ve had the pleasure of working for Lucasfilm and ILM in the past, and my time there has greatly influenced my career. As we look back at all that we’ve accomplished in such a short time at THE VOID, and towards the future and the incredible potential to bring a new form of location-based entertainment to audiences across the globe, we know that the power of The Walt Disney Company will help us get there. We’re excited about the relationships we’ll build through the Accelerator program, the doors that will be opened, and the years of learning and collaboration to come, well beyond the program.
There is much to be learned from Disney, a company that crosses the boundaries of space and time, transcending languages and generations, bringing together people of all ages and nationalities. But most importantly, Disney brings more imagination, magic, and fantasy to the world. And we are inspired and motivated to embark on this next phase of our journey alongside them.
THE VOID now has four experience centers globally, at Madame Tussauds in New York, The Rec Room in Toronto, Canada, The Beach in Dubai and our headquarters outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. We’re excited for all that’s to come at THE VOID this year and can’t wait to introduce new experiences and locations. More to come. Stay tuned.
