Internet/media

The Internet/media companies in STING develop products and services which have the opportunity to be tested and built rapidly with the internet as a platform. This includes business ideas in such areas as consumer services, payment solutions, gaming (not betting), consumer apps and web analytics. Many of the companies have a B2C focus, but not all of them. STING offers two different programs in internet/media: STING Incubate which is 6-18 months long, and STING Accelerate which is 4 months long. You can read more about each program to see which one suits you best.
