Ideas Elevated Docuseries

In 2018, we partnered with @Techstars to launch our first accelerator focused on rising stars in connectivity, media and entertainment. Hundreds of founders applied. Just 10 were selected. We documented their journey from Day One to Demo Day – the five minutes that could make or break them all. (All four episodes are also available on Comcast’s X1 platform by saying “LIFT Labs” into your voice remote!)
