As the Kansas City-based T-Mobile Accelerator readies for its June 30 demo day of immersive technology, the deadline is nearing on applications for a second accelerator program — set to debut this fall with a specific focus on wellness tech.
“T-Mobile Accelerator is actively searching for startups developing the next big thing in 5G technologies that promote healthy living and improve quality of life, from personal fitness wearables that enhance sports performance to telehealth services, digital wellness applications, biomedical monitoring and more,” said Tina Peterson, founder and manager of the accelerator.
The application window for the wellness tech accelerator closes Friday, June 25 with the fall program beginning Aug. 9.

As with the established T-Mobile accelerator, companies participating in the fall program will work directly with technology and business leaders at T-Mobile as they build, test and bring to market new products and services that unleash the potential of T-Mobile 5G. The accelerator runs through early November.
“Consumers care deeply about wellness and that interest continues to grow,” said John Saw, executive vice president of Advanced and Emerging Technologies at T-Mobile. “5G is a powerful enabler, helping us to more deeply understand our own health and stay better connected to services that improve our quality of life.”
In April, the T-Mobile Accelerator unveiled its summer cohort — eight startups focused on immersive technology; from AR wearables to holographic communications, 3D data storytelling, volumetric video streaming, and immersive virtual learning.
Their work — and progress — are set to be showcased June 30 during a virtual demo day event, Peterson said.
“We’re looking forward to sharing the stories of these eight companies and highlighting how far they’ve come over the past few months,” she said.
