Applications are now being accepted from startup companies to participate in the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB)’s media, entertainment and technology alliance of corporate executives and industry-vetted emerging companies showcasing and collaborating on products, services and new revenue models.
That’s how the NAB describes SPROCKIT, which will have a presence at the 2017 NAB Show aside from its year-long SPROCKIT Sync program.
Interested startups must have market validation and prove the potential to significantly impact the media and entertainment industry. Applications may be submitted online by Feb. 15.
Now in its fifth year, SPROCKIT will showcase up to 30 emerging companies, hand-selected by industry leaders, at the upcoming NAB Show, set for April 22-27 in Las Vegas.
SPROCKIT Sync is a series of private forums where industry executives and entrepreneurs meet to collectively discuss new technologies that will advance the industry. Since its launch in 2013, nearly 100 emerging companies have participated in SPROCKIT, many of which have experienced successful funding rounds, partnerships and acquisitions.
SPROCKIT is created in collaboration with World Series of Startups LLC and the NAB. SPROCKIT corporate partners include Cox Media Group, Fox Networks Group, HCL Technologies, Hearst Television, Samsung Global Innovation Center, TEGNA Inc., Univision Communications, and Verizon Digital Media Services.
