These pioneering companies have been selected by industry leaders to collaborate with and present before influencers and decision makers at this year’s NAB Show, scheduled for April 16-21, 2016 in Las Vegas.
Now in its fourth year, SPROCKIT’s annual program features up to 30 emerging companies that are hand-selected by industry leaders based on their potential to develop innovative solutions to the issues facing today’s top media, entertainment and technology companies.
New startups joining the previously announced SPROCKIT 2016 companies in this year’s program include:
“The technologies being developed today are data driven and highly targeted to the end-user experience,” said Harry Glazer, founder and CEO of SPROCKIT.
“With SPROCKIT, we are connecting the people and technology that are shaping the convergence of media, tech and entertainment by having startups and industry leaders work side-by-side on driving the future.”
SPROCKIT will not only showcase its industry-vetted emerging companies at NAB Show in Las Vegas, but convene throughout the year at SPROCKIT Sync, a series of private meetings where executives and entrepreneurs meet to collectively discuss and introduce new technologies that will advance the industry.
Since its launch in 2013, dozens of emerging companies have participated in SPROCKIT and experienced rapid growth, including successful funding rounds, partnerships and even acquisitions.
Together, media and entertainment executives and entrepreneurs are shaping the future of the industry by building relationships to tackle cross-sector challenges, forecast trends and bring solutions to market.
