MediaWorks is a selective, highly immersive instructional and mentorship driven program for startups in the digital media sector, which includes digital video, augmented reality, digital signage, digital audio, video games, or digital art. Demo Day is an opportunity for the companies that have completed the accelerator to showcase their ideas to supporters, customers, and possible investors.
The goal of MediaWorks is to showcase a thriving digital media startup community in East Tennessee, and represents a key element in KEC’s ongoing drive to highlight the region’s leadership in technology, digital media and media content creation.
