ABC Family Sets Cast for Tech-Themed Reality Series ‘Startup U’

30 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Startup U” is ready to launch.

ABC Family has announced the cast for its Silicon Valley-set docu-series that follows 10 entrepreneurial techies looking to make names for themselves while also perhaps bursting others’ bubbles. To do so, they must enter a grueling seven-week program at Draper University, a program led by billionaire founder and venture capitalist Tim Draper.  After a semester of learning the fundamentals of launching a startup company under the mentorship of America’s business leaders, the students will pitch their ideas to venture capitalists eager to find the next big tech innovation. (To date, more than 180 Draper graduates have received funding that totals more than $20 million from mogul investors and Draper himself).

The series hails from Ugly Brother Studios, a Sky Vision partner, and serves as an example of ABC Family’s expanded reach into unscripted series. Mike Duffy, Tim Duffy, Draper, Perry Dance and Ted Iredell serve as executive producers. »
