real experiences in a digital world
Flying Content is a digital storytelling company which believes that location is one of the most important elements for meaningful experiences.
Our mobile devices, wearables, or connected cars know exactly where we are — and that is why we work on content and delivery methods that take location into account.
Flying Content will help you connect to your audience through their devices, wherever they are: in their neighborhood, in the city, or in another country.
Acquarone said he thinks geolocated news could allow media to repurpose articles or “old news? they already have paid for. In his opinion, that could be very interesting for companies — as in the 24/7 news cycle, content gets old very fast.
Startups for News is an international competition that rewards the best startups bringing novel solutions to newsroom challenges. Flying Content was one of 8 finalists in the 2016 Global Editors Network (GEN) contest.
So what’s next for the startups? Many are already at work on the next phase of product development, building out their content and services.
