Hollywood is in trouble: too many new choices in movies, series, and streaming platforms have consumers frustrated deciding what to watch. Meanwhile, the very same streaming services are desperately competing for subscribers, with new platforms emerging each week.
Billions are spent, and sometimes wasted, every year producing and marketing ever more content. And as the stakes go up, originality diminishes. How many more reboots and sequels will it take before people have had enough?
While the fight for eyeballs and attention has never been more competitive, Hollywood remains unable to capitalize on actionable, data driven insights. Entertainment companies are forced to make decisions based on historical precedent rather than real time, authentic audience demand.
The legacy system of Hollywood needs a new way of understanding and analyzing content–an empirical, objective way of organizing itself. Enter the Katch Media Genome, an advanced language that captures the unique, personalized reasons why we like what we like. Designed by Dr. Nolan Gasser, the genome is the foundation of Katch’s analytics and recommendation technology.
Using the Genome, Katch has built a series of Media Market Indexing products that predict where a film or series will perform better or worse across cities, countries, and even demographics. Like the “Google Maps” of filmmaking: we tell you where you should go, how to get there, and which routes to avoid.
The same indexing capability that predicts geographic success can be paired with media buying audiences too: Katch’s Genomic Media Segments are built from our expertise in consumer data. These media buying audiences completely upend the way products are targeted and campaigns are designed. Rather than building messaging around broad demographic groups or behavioral segments (“repeat customers” or “frequent shoppers”), Katch’s Genomic Media Segments are defined by consumer taste. This allows marketers to build incredibly sticky campaigns with powerful emotional resonance, driving up conversion rates, brand equity, and lifetime value metrics.
Genomic traits explain the reasons why different films have unique resonance in different countries. This “explainability” factor offers unprecedented levels of personalization and targeting for a multitude of use cases.
As a B2B entertainment-focused data analytics company, the beauty of Katch is that our technology solutions touch every part of the content lifecycle.
Pre Product / Early Revenue:
- Retainer-C-Level Advisory
- Time/Materials or Project P&L
- Data Exchange
Post Product Launch / Post Proof of Concept:
Annual License Fee (SaaS)
- Modular/Product Based
- Volume Based
- Contract Length
Initial Approach: B2B in entertainment industry ecosystem (content creation, acquisition, and distribution players) focused on Tier 2/3 evolving to Tier 1
3-5 Year plan: B2B in broader Marketing Agency Ecosystem utilizing licensing fee approach and "story telling" key learnings to capture 1.5 % -2 % of $5.4 Billion TAM
Thankfully, data-driven approaches have never been more in demand: Amazon, Apple and Roku use their networks to drive sales of their devices and services, while Disney uses data collected on their streaming apps to sell more cruises, merchandise, and theme park visits.
The sustained fire of the streaming wars means that entertainment companies absolutely need to understand their audiences better in order to stay relevant. In the last 10 years, Netflix has created a revolutionary and fundamentally data driven business model that every major entertainment player is now trying to replicate and enhance. This is evidenced in the massive increase in streaming service subscribers over the last several years
Hollywood also has a glaring diversity problem. McKinsey reported in March 2021 that the entertainment industry is missing out on at least $10 Billion in unrealized revenue due to the lingering effects of historical and ethnic bias. This unrealized potential results from the very same legacy systems that have failed to capitalize on high tech and big data. A genomic approach to content is inherently objective and empirical, optimized to remove personal bias while focusing on the real, emotional factors behind audience taste.
A more data driven industry is also a more equitable one.

At the end of last year we oversubscribed our Seed funding round and we will not be further extending our close date of February 7.
Every week we continue to talk to new executives with all of the major entertainment companies. We are getting especially strong resonance with Content executives and Marketing executives who are recognizing the power of using our genomic insights to better match and target audiences. We anticipate a number of new pilot projects in the next few months. Because we have such a granular understanding of content and which universal genomic traits resonate with what audiences we can not only build taste-based audiences to identify what audiences will be the best fit, we can also identify what genomically-derived messaging will be most compelling with each identified audience segment.
We have just started our sixth semester of Katch University where close to 800 film students from 143 different universities and 40 different countries have learned to analyze and genomically code movies and TV shows. We plan to expand this program internationally this fall with Katch Academy to start coding more international content.
Join us on this adventure!

Last week was a great week for Katch and this week is going strong as well. The 39-month order referenced below with the $3 billion streaming network is now fully executed. We are on track to providing the Q4 2021 deliverables. Then, the next day we received a pilot order from a $26 billion media company to be delivered before the end of the year. We believe this is just the beginning with this client, as they appreciate just how broadly applicable the insights are that our technology provides and are willing to sponsor us throughout the organization.
We have also met our $2.5 million Seed Round target and are now getting ready in early 2022 to raise a target $10 million Series A round.
