Media companies are experiencing a radical shift towards new media, as the sector explores how to develop further opportunities offered by the internet. As a result of this there are an increasing number of new entrants into the market.
The media sector continues to see consolidation and the emergence of strategic partnerships as key mechanismstoward developing advances in content and technology. Media companies are increasingly looking at joint ventures as a means of keeping up with the rate of change in this sector and of sharing the costs and other risks in a highly competitive market.
Day 1: Financial instruments and investment opportunities available both publicly and privately
Introduction to financial instruments available to innovators working in the media sector that intend to boost their business ideas beyond the public (EU or national) funding. The masterclass will then explore the opportunities provided by EU supporting schemes such as SME Instrument, COSME and Startup Europe, as well as risk capital strategies such as venture capital, private equity and stock exchange listing.
Day 2: Ensuring your business model is viable and that you can show you are investment ready
The business model is the core of any successful startup, no matter how great an idea is or how unique an offer may seem, a startup must have a viable way of making money which is sufficient for future investment and is sustainable. Questions like “What business model works best with my idea?” or “How do I know if my startup is using the right model?” are two of many questions founders need to consider in order to achieve the overall long-term success of their venture. During the workshop we will try to answer these questions. The rest of the event will be dedicated to a Business Game Jam which will help to resolve business problems in an informal manner.
