Recruiting now for summer 2018: Sports/Media/Tech Startup Bootcamp
Application Deadline: April 13, 2018
In partnership with NYC Media Lab, Verizon and Yahoo Sports will award $5,000 grants to four teams of entrepreneurs, technologists, engineers and designers who endeavor to build new ventures focusing on one of the themes below:
How can 5G and an Intelligent Edge network impact the fan experience at next-generation sports stadiums, arenas and other “connected” venues?
How can 5G and an Intelligent Edge network enable more compelling and meaningful e-sports experiences for gamers and fans?
How can mobile-first applications of emerging media technology like augmented reality, computer vision, and personalization algorithms engage the generation Z (born in the mid 1990s to early 2000’s) audience for sports?
Four teams will be selected to participate in this bootcamp. Kicking off in June of 2018, NYC Media Lab will execute an 8-week Lean Launchpad program to encourage and support customer discovery and market validation. The goal is to spawn new startups. Participants will have the opportunity to pitch their concept in a concluding demo day in August 2018.
