(SFC) French company SOLIVE has nailed the third annual Start-Up Competition at SPORTEL taking place October 24-27 in Monaco. SOLIVE is a real time social media publishing system that boosts fan engagement for events. Deltatre launched the event that has attracted a lot of attention and proved to offer opportunities for up and coming sports media companies to gain exposure.

SOLIVE was competing against co-national WEFAN, British Tellyo and an American/British virtual reality company Laduma to earn the top prize for up and coming startup businesses.

"We're delighted to be recognised by the judges, and very excited about our idea, which can also be applied to TV talent shows, for example," said Florent Marty, Managing Director of SOLIVE.

"SOLIVE is all about engaging fans on social media, as well as monetisation through offers that trigger impulse buying and other types of transactions."

Carlo de Marchis of Deltatre presented the event and confirmed that prior competitors had greatly benefitted from the competition as a launch, "Several companies who participated last year and the year before are now successful companies.

"Just before the start of SPORTELMonaco, we heard that TopTV had just landed five million euros in funding."
