Amuzo’s New Business Director, Mike Hawkyard, delivered a top pitch at the IC tomorrow Digital Innovation Contest this week to be crowned winner of the BT Sport ‘Driving in-play viewer engagement’ challenge.
Entering the second-screen tennis prediction game idea, On The Line, against 100 other competitors in the Sport category, Amuzo became one of 15 applications selected to go through to the second stage.
Facing a panel of judges, including top representatives from BT Sport and The UK Sports Network, Mike delivered a winning 5-minute pitch to become one of five proposals to be awarded £25,000 prototype funding.
On top of this, each winning organisation gets to retain their own IP plus develop and trial their prototype in partnership with the respective challenge partner.
This year, BT Sport are one of the official IC tomorrow contest partners alongside other big sporting names such as Channel 4 Racing, UK Sport and The Jockey Club.
Mike, along with everyone else in the Amuzo team, would like to thank IC tomorrow for the opportunity to enter the Digital Innovation Contest and of course naming us winners!
