Back in 2019

To everyone who applied: Thank you

We had an overwhelming response to the first round of the Magic Leap Independent Creator Program. Now we need some time to review the submissions and get our ducks in a row. Grants will be offered on a rolling basis until February 15, 2019, and we’ll be back for round two soon.



Ever dreamt of having access to a MoCap/VolCap studio? How about having your idea featured in retail stores? Funding from Magic Leap opens up the possibility for grant recipients to access our full range of partners and resources.


Developer Support

Just because you’re a pioneer, doesn’t mean you should go it alone. With 1:1 guidance from our Developer Relations team, support from Magic Leap's subject matter experts, and even QA testing, if you receive a grant, we’ll work with you through launch.



If you want to make your idea real, you’ll need the right tools. Grant recipients will be provided with the Magic Leap One devices they need to bring their creations to life.


Marketing Support

Publishing in Magic Leap World is just the beginning. You’ll receive dedicated marketing support, including planning, promotion and social media amplification. We'll even ask our partners (we've got some good ones) to help spread the word.

    Developing on Magic Leap One has re-energized me as a developer. Mixed reality is so different from anything I have ever developed for; I’m able to think about solving problems in a completely new way.

    Games are only limited by your imagination! Creating with new platforms makes it even easier to expand your mind and see whole new ways to play!

    It’s not just the device, but the larger evolution in (spatial) computing that excites us! When your space is a part of the computing environment, it opens a whole new world of possibilities, and can lead to incredibly intuitive and natural customer experiences!
