If you have referrals or would like more information, please email email@example.com. In particular, the SPROCKIT team is excited about some of our new areas of focus given recent trends and emerging technologies in media and entertainment as well as the intersection with the mobility industry. 5G means a range of new opportunities, while voice and audio create new pathways for content to be accessed and consumed. We are particularly interested in startups focused on:
- artificial intelligence & natural language processing
- advanced advertising & commerce
- attribution and measurement
- consumer engagement & unique human machine interfaces
- cybersecurity & asset management
- edge computing & network solutions
- integrated media workflow tools and solutions
- voice / audio / in-vehicle entertainment
- 5G & mobility solutions
- Next generation TV
Startup candidates should be able to solve a pain point for corporate partners with a meaningful solution, have a minimum viable product and a reference client(s). Solutions do not have to be specifically media or entertainment focused if they can provide meaningful solutions to the business models for SPROCKIT’s corporate partners
