NAB’s PILOT Program Calls for Innovation Challenge Submissions

The deadline to apply is Jan. 19

PILOT, the technology innovation initiative of the National Association of Broadcasters, is now accepting submissions for the 2024 PILOT Innovation Challenge through Jan. 19.

The Innovation Challenge is seeking startups and growing companies “looking to help broadcasters rise to some of the key challenges and seize opportunities they are likely to face over the next few years,” according to the NAB.

The program provides mentorship and promotion for winning proposals, along with an opportunity to exhibit at next year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas, April 13-17, 2024.

The NAB said a successful company will have a prototype or early-stage product to demonstrate at the 2024 NAB Show. “This annual opportunity highlights innovations that will help broadcast media address challenges in an increasingly competitive and dynamic marketplace,” it said in a press release.

Submissions should align with the three focus areas of the NAB Show: Create, Capitalize and Connect.

“The challenge provides a unique opportunity for innovators to bring fresh ideas to the table that solve problems facing broadcasters and the broadcast community.” said PILOT Executive Director John Clark. “We are looking forward to seeing all of the new technologies and innovation in this year’s submissions and we are excited to spotlight the up-and-coming companies and startups that present them.”

Individuals, teams, companies, academic institutions and nonprofit organizations are eligible. Participants can review the judging criteria on the PILOT website. The list of past Innovation Challenge winners can be found here.
