Grabyo is thrilled to be one of the 33 technology startups joining the Tech City Upscale program this year.
Grabyo has come a long way since its initial launch partnership with Sky in 2013. Having forged strong partnerships with key media and technology companies – including Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, Periscope and Snapchat – Grabyo has scaled fast with year on year growth of more than 200%.
In 2016 Grabyo generated over 15B impressions and 2.1B video views for partners, which now include beIN Sports, the English Premier League, LaLiga, BT Sport, Real Madrid, ATP, Wimbledon, Formula E Racing and Universal Music Group and many more.
By participating in the Upscale program, Grabyo will take part in as many as 30 sessions and socials, that are tailored to fit the specific needs for Grabyo as it continues to grow. At a time when Grabyo scales its global client base, this program will provide invaluable support and guidance from leaders in the U.K. tech space.
By being selected for the Upscale program, Grabyo confirms its position as one of the UK’s most scalable technology companies. This opportunity to work with technology industry veterans such as Lastminute.com founders Martha Lane Fox and Brent Hoberman ensures Grabyo will continue its mission to bring the best of broadcast TV, live events and premium rights to global audiences across every platform and device.
Grabyo CEO, Gareth Capon believes this represents a significant opportunity for Grabyo, he said, “The opportunity to share challenges and experiences with companies on a similar journey and those that have done it before will be invaluable.”
With the dominance of social video consumption creating new production and distribution challenges for content owners, Grabyo has positioned itself for a huge 2017. The mission is to make video simple, accessible and available everywhere in real time, which is something that benefits everyone.
