“Bazillion Dollar Club"
Premieres Tuesday, September 22 at 10 PM ET/PT on Syfy
 
          "Bazillion Dollar Club" is a high-adrenaline, high-stakes docu-series that immerses viewers in the brilliant and cut-throat world of today’s forward thinking innovators. The show follows Dave McClure, a relentless drill sergeant who founded software accelerator 500 Startups, and Brady Forrest, the quirky and creative mind behind the hardware accelerator Highway1. Their companies offer two of the world’s most aggressive accelerator programs that mentor startups leading up to the launch of their billion dollar idea.

          "Bazillion Dollar Club" follows six next-gen companies focused on creating innovations that could potentially present meaningful change in how we live in the future.  In each self-contained hour of "Bazillion Dollar Club," we’ll watch as one new company physically gets incubated for 90 days, all leading up to their “Demo Day” in front of hundreds of venture capitalists. Viewers will get exclusive access into the world of tech incubation – from concept, to prototyping, engineering, marketing, and ultimately to the pitch/demo day.

          In every episode, Dave and Brady mentor a different hardware or software startup (which they've also invested in, P.S.) through an accelator program (read: startup boot camp). One such startup is Ivee.

          Ivee, a voice activated device controls everything in your home. Think of it like a Jarvis (from The Avengers) for your house.
