By Oliver Haugen, Head of the NY Outpost
We were delighted to welcome Ulrich Fischer, Founder and CEO of Memoways, and Dan Wechsler, CFO and Business Guru in our office in New York in November, as participants of the CTI Market Validation Camp. Memoways is a Swiss startup that builds custom apps for storytelling and rich video experience.
Their new product, Comet, is a custom video player that enables content producers to leverage more of their content and engage the viewers by letting them create their own personal playlists. The concept is to split videos into short fragments. Then, with the help of keywords, the viewer can search, filter, navigate and even remix the stream of videos to create a personal video playlist.
Their main goals for the trip were to practice their pitch with a coach, go to networking events in relation with their field, attend a major tech conference in NYC and meet with a US intellectual property lawyer to learn more about patents in the US.
