Streann Media inducted into Silicon Valley Top 20 Startups

Streann Media is a SaaS platform that is reinventing content distribution, engagement, and monetization.

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Startup Grind powered by Google Entrepreneur announced the induction of 50 Companies to the 2018 Class of Startups and Streann Media gets a happy surprise as they get selected Top 20.

Streann is Reinventing Content: Distribution, Engagement and Monetization

Of the 7,000 plus startups that were considered, 130 were selected representing the Startup Grind community across 80 countries and the Top 50 have been inducted into our Global Startup Program for 2018.

"We are extremely excited to have been chosen into this elite program and being selected Top 20 is a great recognition of our fantastic traction and game changing technologies that are touching millions of people," says Gio Punzo, Co-founder & CEO of Streann Media.

"We are taking off; our technologies are being consumed in 141 countries. We are disrupting digital advertisement by replacing traditional pre-roll and our storytelling feature Selfie-Ads is changing the content creation landscape, it's been great sharing our story in Silicon Valley," added Punzo.

"These startups have great teams, traction, technology and massive markets," says Derek Andersen, founder & CEO of Startup Grind

"We are here to rescue the broadcast industry, we started to design new features by decentralizing video infrastructure using blockchain technologies to maximize the potential of new video services," said Antonio Calderón, Co-founder & CTO of Streann Media.

Streann's value proposition goes right where it counts, digital monetization. How does a TV station or radio station make money? Selling advertising. While traditional advertising spending is down and it's boring; digital ad spending is up and should be more engaging, said the co-founders, who previously worked in the broadcast industry.

"We built a digital advertising technology that can increase digital ads revenue times 10 in live video, audio and video on demand. Our customers create campaigns like Facebook Ads Manager but the ads are in their own digital networks. Content providers are in control of CPM and they finally monetize. With our technology, our customers are engaging with end users and most importantly they are monetizing in digital," Punzo said. 

"Streann looks at the future of television like no one else is. Its user experience and monetization platforms make companies take a huge leap in technology. They are at the forefront constantly and have a personalized and exceptional relationship with each client," said Raúl Domínguez, digital and new business director of TCS Digital.

Streann has deployed over 250 platforms on Web, iOS, Android, Roku, AppleTV.  Customers are top 5 content providers in their region or market segment, like TCS Digital in Central America, Actualidad Radio in Florida, Cariflix the Netflix of the Caribbean, Iriejam in New York and PuraVida in Costa Rica that use Streann's inventions to engage with end users.  "The results have been great — real ads impressions, new user generated content, real testimonials, real storytelling," said Punzo.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love.
