Niche Video Media™ is pleased to announce that the company has been selected as a finalist in the Technology Association of Georgia (TAG)/Venture Atlanta 2014 Business Launch Competition. Over the course of the next month, the video hosting company will receive one-on-one mentorship from an established entrepreneur in the industry to help prepare them for the final presentation on May 5, 2014. Out of over 90 companies who entered the competition, only eight finalists are competing for the grand prize, worth nearly $450,000.
“It is such an honor to be recognized by the Technology Association of Georgia,” said Glen West, Chief Customer Officer. “We believe that our business model fits a specific need in the video hosting industry that no other company currently meets, which is what makes our Private Media Channel™ so unique and revolutionary. It is incredibly rewarding to have such prestigious leaders in the industry see the same thing in our company.”
As a finalist, Niche Video Media™ will have 10 minutes to convince a panel of judges and live audience that their business model is not only successful but vital to the industry. Following the formal presentation, there will be a 10 minute Q & A session, where the judges seize the opportunity to reveal out any holes in the plan. The final score will be a combination of the overall evaluation of the judges and a vote from the live audience. The business with the highest score will be deemed the grand prize winner of the competition.
The grand prize package is valued at nearly $450,000 and includes all of the tools and support a start-up companies needs in order to be successful – for example, a $50,000 cash prize, office space, accounting services, legal support, marketing and PR services, investor exposure, coaching, development and more.
The final event will be on May 5, 2014 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the G. Wayne Clough Undergraduate Learning Commons of the Georgia Tech campus. Registration for the event is now open online at https://www.123signup.com/event?id=ddrmf.
