Profile

Highlights

  • Largest US media network customer secured and strategic partnership executed as cornerstone investor.
  • Product market fit validated for media networks looking to improve engagement across the world.
  • Featured in the Apple App Store 59 times in 19 countries for the 'Best new app" category.

Business Summary

VoiceByte has executed a strategic partnership and venture terms sheet with iHeart Media in New York. Whilst the terms of the proposed US launch campaign (launching Q4, 2016) including the name of the US celebrity supporting the roll out remain confidential, the deal itself will soon be in the public domain.

VoiceByte is a next generation mobile content generator that enables multiple audiences to record and share their voice and sentiment to interact with media networks.

• Media networks (TV, radio shows, podcasts & YouTube channels) can now put a microphone in the pockets of their audience to enable richer user generated content whilst understanding sentiment by location and subject thanks to its unique enterprise dashboard. Engaging the audience in this way glues them to the show, influences programming and increases ratings.

• Celebrities can now get more intimate with their fans and connect via VoiceByte's unique community development and monetisation features.

• Popular locations can take advantage of VoiceByte's patent pending geo-location function called 'VoiceTagging' which allows users, live events or points of interest to geo-locate VoiceByte content so it's only accessible within a certain time and range of their location.

VoiceByte has been deep in development over the last 6 years. Technology has caught up to the vision to now achieve product market fit for one of the biggest pain points in the entertainment industry, audience attrition.

July 23, 2016

After experimenting in the Australian market, we found our best product market fit which we believe will give us the most growth and revenue opportunities.

We took our product to the US market and discovered that VoiceByte had market relevance and strong interest from a number of potential strategic partners.
