Submission opens for audiovisual and media tech startup accelerator Storytek




Submissions are now open for the Storytek accelerator, the first mentor-driven accelerator fully focusing on audiovisual sector, where deep knowledge of the global film and creative industry mixes with top notch technology competence. Estonia, already a world leader in technology innovation with pioneering e-residency and e-governance solutions and home to the renowned Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival (PÖFF) is a natural fit for fostering the ecosystem of next generation creatives.


Storytek is designed for companies with cutting edge creative-tech prototypes which are poised to scale. It’s a 10 week intensive, tailor-made bootcamp in Tallinn. Participating companies will graduate with in-depth assessment of their project, custom tools, and a strategic road map with a global network of mentors will sharing their expertise with them. A custom track will be designed for the needs of each business. PÖFF will refer forward thinking creative talent come in and actively work with the Storytek companies to give feedback from the storyteller community - maybe to generate some new companies of their own.


Committed mentors include producer, sales & IP executive Michael Favelle (Odin’s Eye Entertainment), multi-platform producer John Heinsen (Bunnygraph Entrainment), digital business development executive Laura Anne Edwards (TED Resident, Google Labs, NASA), media innovation expert and investor Guido Van Nispen (Raad Von Kultuur),  digital comic book publisher Soyoung Jung (Netcomics), acclaimed branding and design mentor Julius Talvik and others. The legal partner for Storytek is Price Waterhouse Coopers Baltics providing legal and IP training and advisory for the participating teams. 


Quote “Storytek is offering uniquely hands-on collaboration between tech and creative communities. We want participating tech companies to leave with practical tools for growing and running their business globally and with real deliverables, and we want the creative community to fully embrace the opportunities technology offers them to scale their audiences,” said Sten Saluveer, Storytek CEO.


Storytek is made possible by Enterprise Estonia and the Black Nights Film Festival, private investment and by a wide range of generous sponsors.


Deadline to apply, 31 August. The programme starts on 25th of September.
