THIS WEEK’S CULTURAL START-UP: FLAMEFY

Next-up on our online cultural entrepreneur series, the Forum d’Avignon would like to introduce: Flamefy, a company that proposes to find the right audience for their cultural and educative contents. 

What is your company’s objective?

FlameFy proposes companies the right audience for their cultural and educative contents.

Our solution allows us to search online, on social networks and mobile application, those who are interested in a subject in a way that constructs ultra qualified audiences.

A quest that inevitably that goes through the automatic analysis of large volumes of data (Big Data).

What challenges do you face in your development? 

Our first challenge is technological. We are currently working to implement new technical standards in order to integrate e-books (readium) and video games (Unitv). The issue here is media convergence.

Comme notre technologie est basée sur le Big Data, nous rencontrons tous les jours dans notre mission de conduite de changement des questionnements et parfois de la peur de la part des gens. Notre second défi est de montrer qu’en utilisant des règles et une bonne éthique, le Big Data est une évolution profitable pour tous.

What does it mean to be a cultural entrepreneur?

For us, being a cultural entrepreneur, means using new digital technologies to render experiences more accessible and immersive.  

It’s about offering arists, authors, musicians and other talented cultural actors, a trampoline to surpass the separation between culture and the new uses in technology.

Cédric Monnier and Jessica Mei Xu, co-founders of Flamefy.
