With STADIEM, we’re excited to make Europe a global leader in media innovation! By supporting start-ups and scale-ups in their growth and development, we look forward to not only seize, but also create opportunities for media innovation that can have a real impact, both locally and internationally.

Sten Saluveer

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.
