IBC Accelerators Submission Form

INTRODUCTION

Please complete this form to propose new Accelerator Media Innovation Projects to develop between February and July 2020 and to showcase at IBC2020 (11-15 September 2020 in Amsterdam).

There is also an option to showcase at TM Forum’s Digital Transformation World (DTW, 16-18 June 2020 in Copenhagen) if the project encompasses telecoms/ media connectivity elements and the team would like to demonstrate the solution at mid-stage, at this event.

Please note the deadline to submit your proposal is 15th January 2020.  After this date our team may be unable to accept your project proposal, so please send your submission as soon as possible. Also note that an IBC Accelerator ‘Kickstart’ event (working sessions, presentations and team matchmaking/ recruitment sessions) will take place in London, UK in February 2020, specific date & venue to be advised soon.

ACCELERATOR PROJECT ROLES

There are two distinct roles in Accelerator Projects: Champions and Participants.

Champions are the potential buyer/end user for the solution developed by the Project team. They define the business challenge, validate that the project addresses a significant industry challenge or problem, help develop the use cases for the project, and promote the solution within their organisations and to the wider industry. 

Participants are the companies which build the solution. They develop project plans and timelines, design the solution including the proof-of-concept demonstration, and complete the necessary documents (charters, templates, etc.) as required by the Accelerator program. 

Submission Form

Please enter companies or organisations (either Champions or Participants) from whom you have so far obtained interest or agreement that they would like to participate. Please identify the contact information for the individual to whom an Accelerator agreement for this organisation should be sent. You may also include tentative Champions or Participants in your submission, but a project may not be fully approved to proceed without meeting the required number of confirmed participants, per above. For additional information, please visit our FAQ Page. Note: The minimum number of team members per Accelerator project are 1 Champion and 4 Participants, though more are strongly encouraged. Roles marked in red are required; please add additional rows as needed.

While Accelerator Media Projects culminate in a showcase at IBC in Amsterdam in September 2020, there is an option to showcase at TM Forum’s Digital Transformation World (DTW) event in Copenhagen in June 2020. This is dependent on whether there is an aspect of the project that features a clear connectivity or IT component, and if members of the project team (either Champions or Participants) wish to showcase the project at this event. Please note additional fees, per next page. Please indicate you or your team may be interested to take this option.
