Last year in November, Magic Leap introduced an Independent Creator Program. Yesterday, they named their selections for this program. The Magic Leap team reviewed over 6,500 entries, and selected projects in a wide range of categories, including education, entertainment, gaming, enterprise and more.
Magic Leap Independent Creator Program is a development fund to help individual developers and teams to kick-start their Magic Leap One projects. They are offering grants between $20,000 and $500,000 per project along with the developer, hardware, and marketing support.
The teams selected include:
The selected teams will now be paired with Magic Leap’s Developer Relations team for guidance and support. Once the teams have built, submitted, and launched their projects, the best experiences will be showcased at L.E.A.P. Conference in 2019. Teams will receive dedicated marketing support, including planning, promotion, and social media amplification. The Developer Relations team consisting of Magic Leap’s subject matter experts and QA testers will give developers one on one guidance.
