Tellyo has just won our inaugural Barca Starta competition for start-ups in Barcelona. The company fought off stiff competition from 25 other start-ups, with the judges singling out six other finalists – Nexmo, LoopMe, OpenSignal, BIG Launcher, Rednote and MPme – for special mention.
Tellyo is an app, currently in private beta, that enables users to grab the last 30 seconds of TV footage on their phone and share it with friends. It helps in the discovery of interesting programs and enables TV stations to reach new audiences. All the user does to capture the moment is to pres one button in the app. The shared video clips carry ads and links back to content owners services such as catch up TV, online streaming or video on demand.
Congratulations to the Tellyo team, who win €1,000 in cash, €5,000 worth of advertising on mobilemarketingmagazine.com and in our print magazine, and a video interview on the website.
