Vikingcubator April 2018 – WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT

15 Vikings have gathered on the 19th April 2018 and fought the good fight. It was a difficult decision for the judges but alas one has emerged victorious.

We would like to announce the winner of Vikingcubator April 2018: SuperNewsRoom. SuperNewsRoom is a startup from Malaysia that wants to bridge the gap between founders and journalists


In a pitch that gathered 17 start-ups competing for a spot in Vikingcubator, the nordic program funded by global media group NHST, the bet landed upon a start-up developing a tool for intelligent analysis of media content: EMMFER.


On the 3rd of March 2017, EMMFER, a Singapore media start-up specialising in analysing creative content and predicting audience’s reactions, won a 120-day programme with Vikingcubator, including monetary support, mentorship and office space. Today, we are spending a bit of time with Benjamin Tang, Founder and CEO of EMMFER.
