News Image
IBC has launched the Startup Forum, a brand-new initiative for IBC 2017 that brings together digital media startups, media houses and investors for a day of keynote presentations, panel sessions, pitching and networking.

The event, which runs on 17 September 2017, is held in association with Media Honeypot, organisers of the eponymous international conference that helps media executives identify new business opportunities with emerging technology companies.

"For 50 years, IBC has been established as the world's leading media technology event. In 2017, the media and entertainment business is being transformed by innovative and entrepreneurial Startups. For this reason, established media houses and investors are actively seeking out the new technologies that will lead the next wave of growth," said IBC CEO Michael Crimp. "IBC2017 is embracing this opportunity by launching the IBC Startup Forum. IBC's industry knowledge, combined with Media Honeypot's matchmaking expertise, ensures that the IBC Startup Forum is a must-attend event."

Startups and growing businesses with innovative digital media or media business related services such as VR/AR, Social Media, Ad Technology, AI, eCommerce, eSports, Apps or Security, Search Engine Marketing, Conversion Optimisation, AI, Machine Learning, Apps or SEO are invited to apply to take part in the Startup Forum. The Media Honeypot and IBC teams will screen the applicants and hand-pick approximately 75 companies which they feel are of most interest to media investors, and can therefore reap the most benefits from attending.

Successful applicants can then purchase discounted tickets to attend, gaining the opportunity to pre-arrange meetings with interested media houses, VCs and investors to discuss possible partnerships.

As well as networking opportunities, the seminar programme features key speakers who will share invaluable insights into the latest developments in media technology and how they can be harnessed into successful business opportunities. Confirmed speakers to date including Marco DeMiroz, Co-Founder and General Partner, The Virtual Reality Fund; Steffen Keidel, Chief Financial Officer, Adblock Germany; and Michael Jaschke, CEO, Glomex/ ProSiebenSat1.
