  • Tech is disrupting all areas of media and entertainment, and investors are rushing to cash in.
  • Startups are attracting millions in investments to change how content is made, distributed, and more.

Technology is upending all facets of media and entertainment. New startups are raising capital to jump on audiences’ shift to streaming, change hidebound production practices, and more.

Business Insider talked with founders about the pitches they used to raise millions and innovate in content creation and distribution. 

Investors have particularly chased AI startups like Runway, which promises to reduce the cost and time it takes to create special effects like de-aging and film restoration; and Papercup, an AI-based translation company.

“There’s a lot of friction in making content,” Peter Cioni previously said of his and his brother Michael’s AI platform, Strada, which streamlines production processes. “We want to ease that.”

There’s Canela Media, which raised $32 million to build a streaming home for Latinos, believing the audience wasn’t well served by mainstream streamers. “I kept reading about the streaming wars,” cofounder Isabel Rafferty previously told BI. “But I’m a Latina and my options are very limited.”

Legion M took an unconventional approach to fundraising. The production startup crowdsourced funding from ordinary people, who will then get a chance to help decide what projects the company pursues. The company called its app that lets users influence the development process a “fantasy football for film buffs.”
