Storytek

Europe has hundreds if not thousands of early-stage innovators and equally as many start-ups in media and beyond. The most important resource they need from becoming 1 million companies to 100 million companies are skills and resources to deliver growth. With Storytek and the Exit Academy, we aim to power Stadiem participants with the mindset, tools, and resources to take their growth to the next level.
