Tech Startups wanted to disrupt the Sports Media & Digital production Industry
by Startacus Admin
Here at Startacus we are game for most things, especially when it comes to highlighting Tech Startup Competitions that are aiming to disrupt or develop solutions to problems or issues faced by either consumers or businesses.
Step forward then the latest BT Infinity Lab comp which sees TechHub and broadcasting rock stars BT Sport on a crusade to find the freshest, boldest and best ideas and people who are trying to disrupt or evolve the Sports Media and Digital Production industry.
TechHub and BT Infinity Lab have been collaborating now for almost two years and this latest comp sees them once again engaging with the tech startup community in order to find real solutions to the problems that vex consumers and businesses - a real team effort if you like!
So if you are a Sports Media / Digital production Industry related Tech Startup or individual and you are disrupting or evolving one of the below:
advanced user interfaces
sports data analytics
production side media
or something which hasn’t yet been considered but which could change the face of BT Sport...
then you need to apply to this competition!
Shortlisted finalists will be invited to the BT Sport studios in London where they will present their proposals to a panel of BT experts. The winning pitch will receive a prize of six months mentoring and support from BT’s Research & Innovation teams. They’ll help evaluate and scope a potential trial of the winning technology or service with BT Sport. The winner will also nab six months’ membership at TechHub, with access to its workspace and events.
Closing date for registration is Sunday 6th December 2015 so you better get your skates on if you want to pitch / or punt your big idea to the experts. Once you’ve completed the registration form you will be sent full details of how to enter.
Good luck to all who enter, whether you're a member of the Startacus startup community or otherwise! We look forward to hearing about all the finalists’ pitches over the next while.
