Vivendi awards the Music Discovery, Recommendation & Creation prize to Fusic at Midem

 

 

Vivendi awarded the Music Discovery, Recommendation & Creation prize to Fusic at Midem, the international market dedicated to the new music ecosystem, in Cannes (France).

 

The prize was awarded as part of Midemlab, the international pitching competition for cutting-edge start-ups and businesses with innovative solutions that increase audiences and engage a new consumer experience.

 

Ten companies from all over the world were selected to compete for the Music Discovery, Recommendation & Creation award. The jury chose Fusic and rewarded a company providing a very innovative technology and commercial potential. Fusic allows people to record themselves singing their favorite song, blend this selfie with the original video recording and share it on social media.

The Music Discovery, Recommendation & Creation award perfectly illustrates Vivendi’s willingness to develop and increase strong ties with talent and young innovative businesses in the digital economy. Innovation and talent discovery are growth drivers and key pillars of the Group’s development strategy.

 

The Midemlab winners will be offered the opportunity to meet and share their vision and ambitions with the management of Vivendi Village, the Group’s operational unit which brings together service-oriented companies with significant growth potential in the production, distribution and commercial development of content.
