Streaming Video Technology Alliance Grant Program

About the SVTA Grant Program

The Streaming Video Technology Alliance Grant Program was started in 2018 to help smaller companies, like startups, bring their innovative ideas and technology into our working groups and projects without financial encumbrance. This benefits the Streaming Video Technology Alliance as well as the industry but infusing our publications with bleeding-edge ideas. But it’s also beneficial to the Grant companies by allowing them unfettered access to many of the larger companies with whom they might want to engage, sometimes even resulting in acquisition.

Diversity and Inclusion

We are committed to extending Grant Program Awards to businesses owned by under-represented and/or marginalized groups. You can read more about this means for the Grant Program applicants in our Diversity and Inclusion Statement.
