SPROCKITSPROCKIT introduces and showcases today’s media and entertainment entrepreneurs to the industry’s leading companies for partnerships and investments, bringing the most innovative products, services, and revenue models to market.

In partnership with the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) and the World Series of Startups, SPROCKIT is a year-round program that starts with the NAB Show, the world’s largest and most important media and entertainment event, and continues with SPROCKIT Sync, the industry’s exclusive community of media and entertainment decision-makers that meets three times a year for day-long meetings in the entertainment (LA – July 2014), media (NY – October 2014 in conjunction with NY TV week) and technology (Silicon Valley – January 2015) hubs.

SPROCKIT was first launched at the 2013 NAB Show, highlighting 10 market-ready startups that presented on stage and met in one-on-one meetings with industry executives. SPROCKIT has now evolved into a year-long program showcasing 30 of today’s top media and entertainment entrepreneurs to leading companies.

SPROCKIT is targeting startups that:

  • Are providing solutions to industry pain points in digital media, social engagement, the content lifecycle (including creation, data management/analytics, commerce, distribution/delivery and consumption), advertising/marketing, etc.
  • Are poised to dramatically transform the industry – the company should have some traction and would benefit from a platform that engages them with key industry clients and new partners
  • Have a desire to join the conversation on the future of the industry, to meet and collaborate with other emerging entrepreneurial innovators and  established leading companies seeking new solutions in a changing world

The application form is here: http://www.f6s.com/sprockitclass2014. Submissions will be accepted through December.  Startups are vetted and selected by an independent 3rd party, composed of investors and industry veterans.
