Brave inventors, intrepid tinkerers, awesome doers, and startups everywhere: we’ve got a job for you.

Over the course of the past few months, we’ve been busy in the Lab. We’ve been hard at work on a solution for personal file management; opening up an Alpha version of BitTorrent Sync. We’ve been looking at ways to streamline creative collaboration; using a simple file delivery service we call SoShare. We’ve been exploring search prioritization; helping artists find visibility via BitTorrent Surf. And we’ve been experimenting with the storytelling and monetization potential of BitTorrent publishing; via content releases with media innovators: authors like Tim Ferriss, studios like Cinedigm.

Our goal is to create a more sustainable distribution model for the Internet’s creators and fans.

We’re in this together.

And we want your help.

We’re opening up our innovation lab to new media startups. If you have a publicly available product in sound, film, live streaming, media sharing, or peer-to-peer technologies, we’ll work with you to accelerate your idea’s success.

Qualified applicants will receive an initial assessment of their service against our product vision and market. Select participants will get to user-test product ideas with over 170 million BitTorrent users. They’ll also receive advertising and product placement within the BitTorrent ecosystem, as well as potential partnership, investment, and acquisition opportunities.

Want in? Apply to the BitTorrent Acceleration Program. Or, if you happen to be in New York this weekend, stop by and visit us at TechCrunch Disrupt.
