Purpose and goal
With the help of Vinnova phase 2 grant, the purpose of this project is to investigate how to adapt our solution for scalability and reproducibility in larger scopes. We will investigate the market conditions in order to produce product features that allow for a scalable business model and help us reach a large audience and build user base directly on the intended market (entertainment & sports industry). Therefore, the goal is to design, develop and test product features within the Stagecast platform that allow vast and rapid scale of the Stagecast product and business.
Expected results and effects
Desired effects one year after the successful completion of the project: - The Vinnova project phase 2 will help us research and test the necessary functions within the platform that will allow for wide market penetration and scalability. - Stagecast anticipates to close an external funding round (small Series-A round) of about 20 MSEK. The money provided will help SC expand and build a sales team, continuing building a user base and gain market share.

During these phases we will perform various activities that will lead to well-grounded product features based on market insights as well as a good documented showcases for the upcoming Series-A Round in Spring 2019. Specific activities will include user testing, market research, expert workshops and prototyping on both web and mobile development.
