Vizeum Launches Spark

In Cannes last year: Vizeum hosted their very own Dentsu Aegis Dragons' Den style event showcasing our new Spark start-up engagement programme.

3 start-ups were invited to step into our start-up den to win over our dragons with their best ideas on how digital can empower society.
 

The event - hosted by BBC worldwide reporter Lucy Hockings – featured our very own Dentsu Aegis Dragons headed up by David 'Shingy' Shing, AOL's (self proclaimed) Digital Prophet with Vizeum's Global President Thomas Le Thierry, Gabrielle McGee of the Tory Burch Foundation and our client Maggie Dehler from Fox completing the jury.  

Our start-up line up included; Cluep, SUPA A.I and Smartzer who all had a mere 5 minutes to win over our jury. A brave challenge to take on!

Cluep pitched their text analysis and image recognition engine as a solution to higher levels of civic engagement. By targeting people based on what they're sharing and feeling it could enable governments to better connect with people empathetically and emotionally.

Smartzer pitched their clickable, shoppable and interactive videos as a digital solution to enabling clickable donations for charitable fundraising via video content.

While SUPA A.I pitched how their apparel digital sensor could facilitate the largest vault of digital health data for GenZ, in turn empowering scientists to find solutions for major health issues.

SUPA A.I was crowned the winner with their potential to positively impact future health outcomes. Check their products out here if you're interested in being SUPA'd!
