Three of the eleven start-ups will get the chance to pitch in-front of a jury of media entrepreneurs such as Douglas Roos from Nyheter24-Gruppen and Jonas Hedenberg at Bonnier Growth Media.

Mypaper is the first start-up to pitch. The company is offering a payment solution connected to single newspaper articles instead of having to pay for a full online subscription.

It’s followed by Newsreps, which aims to make the collaboration between media houses and citizen journalists easier.

Byymee will then finish the pitches by telling the jury about their idea of digital business cards.

‘‘Start-ups at Meg is a long-term effort. We want to create a fruitful meeting between the established actors in the media industry and new players who are digitally transforming parts of the industry,’’ says Frida Edman, business developer at Bok & Bibliotek, according to the release.

Meg will also, for the first time, elect the best media start-up of the year. The award will be given to a company that in a unique and innovative way has developed a product that quickly has become, or is projected to be, a success story.
