What Is Aries Media Project?

Aries Media Project aims to accelerate media and entertainment startups in emerging markets by connecting them to resources in global media hubs. This objective is rooted in three core beliefs:

Media plays a critical role in advancing societies through information and entertainment, and when the media reflects the societies it serves, those societies flourish, both socially and economically


The global media and entertainment market is inefficient because the resources required to build best-in-class content businesses are overwhelmingly concentrated in a handful of cities


There is an opportunity to accelerate media and entertainment startups in emerging markets by bridging the gap between the entrepreneurs who build them, and the networks that sit outside those markets


How Do We Help You Succeed?

Aries serves as an intermediary between media startups in emerging markets, and professionals with a vested interest in those businesses. It achieves this by managing an international network of founders, operators, advisors, and investors, connecting them to one another when they present mutually beneficial goals. Some examples of how Aries supports this network include:

Founders & Operators

Access to global experts who can help scale your business


Relationships with boards and businesses seeking expertise


Counsel navigating geopolitics and introductions to thesis-aligned founders
