SYFY INVITES YOU TO JOIN "THE BAZILLION DOLLAR CLUB" ON SEPTEMBER 22

LAS VEGAS, NV - July 21, 2015 - Syfy announced today at SXSW V2V the premiere date for The Bazillion Dollar Club, a high-adrenaline, high stakes docu-series set in the cutthroat world of today's most forward-thinking innovators as they search for the next great idea. The Bazillion Dollar Club will debut Tuesday, September 22 at 10pm.

Set in Silicon Valley, the six-episode series follows Dave McClure, a relentless drill sergeant who founded 500 Startups, software accelerator and venture capital fund, 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 from concept to product launch.

McClure and Forrest gave attendees at today's conference a peek at the series: http://www.syfy.com/bazilliondollarclub.

McClure has invested in over 1,000 companies worldwide including 3D printing company Makerbot, which was acquired by Stratasys for $400M; the social media startup Wildfire, acquired by Google for $350M; financial monitoring service Credit Karma, recently valued at over $3B; and telephony innovator Twilio, which was recently valued at over $1B and raised over $100M in venture capital. In just five years, his venture capital firm has funded thousands of entrepreneurs and helped them raise over $3B. McClure is regarded as an innovator and influencer in social networking, and he was also an early employee at PayPal, working with the infamous "PayPal Mafia," a group of tech entrepreneurs who later founded multiple billion dollar startup companies including LinkedIn, YouTube, Yelp and Yammer.

Forrest is a technology evangelist, obsessed with opening doors for makers, entrepreneurs and inventors looking to launch the world's next game-changing product. Forrest is currently vice president of Highway1, the hardware accelerator that is part of PCH, and is responsible for some of the hottest names in the hardware renaissance including: CUE, the deep health tracker Navdy, the heads up display for cars; Drop, the connected baking assistant; and Ringly, the fashionable connected ring and jewelry company. Under his leadership, the 45 companies that have completed Highway1 have raised more than $50M in seed funding, with products shipping to 92 countries around the world. Forrest also co-founded Ignite, the worldwide global talk series that has been embraced by geeks in more than 200 cities.

The series is produced by Zero Point Production (Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown; The Hunt with John Walsh) with executive producers Lydia Tenaglia, Christopher Collins and Craig H. Shepherd, and co-executive producer Abigail Shafran. The six episode, one-hour series premieres on September 22, 2015.
