Media is undervalued. That may sound weird to say given that some of the biggest mergers in history have involved media companies, but it is true nonetheless. The role of media is never thought of in the holistic sense that would allow people to see just how influential it really is. The stories we read, watch, and listen to on a daily basis shape how we view the world around us, our culture, our history and even ourselves. Indeed, the very existence of both culture and history is dependent on stories — and it is through media that we create and consume most of these stories in the modern world.

That modern world is changing. Media — and the huge influence it wields — finds itself at an inflexion point. As the technology surrounding it has evolved, the landscape has shifted significantly. Whereas before a small number of executives would decide what you watch and when you watch it, technology has empowered and democratised every part of the content production and consumption process. Anybody can create or consume any type of content at any time and on a multitude of devices. In short, new technology is providing an opportunity for startups to challenge incumbents and shape the future of media, by ways of new models of content creation, distribution, and monetisation.

In turn, we believe that these changes that technology is bringing to media, mean that media will take on an even more heightened role in tackling some of the world’s most difficult problems. Whether that’s providing access to education for all; reshaping the global economy by virtue of new communication tools; changing how people view the word ‘career’ by enabling them to monetise their passions more effectively; or raising awareness and facilitating actions around both global and local issues.

How media evolves is both urgent and critical — and people are not paying enough attention to it.

It is for that reason that we are launching Supernode Global — the first global MediaTech platform that helps to build and grow the most impactful MediaTech companies through community and capital.

At Supernode Global, our goal is to make sure that the future of media is in good hands by providing support to the world’s most important MediaTech startups. Through our platform, exceptional entrepreneurs in our space benefit from access to the relevant connections and resources to build and grow their companies. Very simply, our services include the following:

  • Access to capital (angel and venture)
  • Access to talent
  • Access to potential partners, customers and service providers
  • Access to mentorship
  • Peer to peer knowledge sharing and troubleshooting
  • Bespoke programs designed for early stage companies
  • Matchmaking service connecting members of the community around specific needs

Great ideas, talent and capital can be found everywhere, and our goal is to make sure that the right people connect to each other no matter where they are. We believe our global nature, and the unique combination of capital and community will unlock incredible value for startups, corporates and investors.
