Red Bull Amplifier launched in April with a mission to find the most innovative new music start-ups and give them an opportunity only Red Bull can provide. Thanks for everyone who applied, we have been inundated with brilliant music startups and have been genuinely impressed with the level of talent we have seen.
...and the winners are:
Makelight turns people into pixels. It connects individuals’ phones into an Olympic games-like crowd display, and enables users to interact directly with the stageshow. The product is already functional for crowds of up the 50,000.
Beatguide offers the best way to find electronic music events. Whatever time, price, district, music style or venue you have in mind, Beatguide can find events in seconds and allows you to directly listen to artists' tracks.
Gig Dropper is a location-based app that allows you to connect your music, podcasts and other audio to real world places. By allowing users to leave 'drops' at locations for users to discover, and finding 'drops' left by others, it serves up an ultra local audio experience, created and curated by its users.
It’s been a great pleasure to work with such incredible panel of inspiring people, each bringing to the table a unique point of view on the future of tech and music.
Sidekick Studios is part incubator, part innovation consultancy, and all mission. They create their own startups, and use the power of the startup process to help large organisations innovate the right way. They help their clients discover and build the very first versions of new digital products and services.
Red Bull Media House is a multi-platform media company with a focus on sports, culture, and lifestyle. Offering a wide range of premium media products and compelling content across media channels as diverse as TV, mobile, digital, audio, and print, with core media offerings that appeal to a global audience.
The work has only just begun....
We are going to work closely with these three incredible startups to help them grow. Stay tuned to the updates from the Amplifier crew.
