SAM Preccelerator Announces Seventh Class of Companies
The Preccelerator® Program, a Santa Monica, CA based accelerator program for early stage startup companies in the digital media and technology space, announced today that it has added its seventh class of companies featuring four innovative startups.
In 2012 Stubbs Alderton & Markiles launched the first-of-its kind Preccelerator® Program to provide select start-ups with co-working space, mentorship, sophisticated legal services, a full curriculum, user testing sessions, and access to a strategic perks portfolio with the objective of helping grow a founder’s idea from business concept to a funded company. The Preccelerator has 6 month terms, and adds new companies every 3 months for overlapping terms. Over the past five years, 22 companies have graduated the Program, of which 18 have received funding totaling over $9M.
Preccelerator® Program Class 7 companies include:

LineForLine is a SaaS platform for music promotion that gives artists the ability to share parts of their songs as lyric video clips. These audiovisual snippets of lyrics with sound are intended to be shared as a form of music discovery and promotion. With a growing demand for visual content, the LineForLine team believes these clips are the best way to accomplish their mission of helping people listen and connect to the message of an artist’s music.

Ca$het – CA$Het is a multi-services platform (MSP) that allows users to identify, curate, and monetize products in movies and TV shows. We believe that the entertainment industry creates tremendous value by associating characters and products on screen. The emotional impact created when actors and products interact has been impossible to monetize due to a lack of a suitable mechanism and marketplace. We aim to change that through our platform. CA$Het provides a mechanism to quickly and accurately identify on screen products while simultaneously creating the marketplace where they can be purchased. (Coming Soon!)
