Working in close collaboration with business units across the Viacom18 network, the VStEP start-ups have developed solutions that are relevant to both media and non-media companies.

Achint Setia, Senior Vice-President, Viacom18 Digital Ventures and Head, VStEP, said, “Engaging with start-ups through VStEP has been an enriching experience as the initiative has brought solutions that add business value while at the same time drives a culture of innovation internally as well. Over the last six months, our teams have worked closely with the start-ups on the POCs, perfecting them into solutions that are adoption ready.”

Furthering Viacom18’s commitment in fostering a culture of innovation and engaging with start-ups, the company recently entered a strategic partnership with Anthill Ventures for an accelerator programme called Anthill Studio that will scout for start-ups building products for M&E industry using technologies such as AI /ML, AR/ VR, IoT, Big Data, Blockchain and others.
