About Us:
Inveni needs your help to change the way the world decides what to
watch on TV.
As you sit there reading this, technology is evolving.  The web, smart phones and tablets have had
great success.  Now is the time to add a
new mega channel to the mix, the Interactive TV.  With Google TV’s announcement that the
majority of new TV’s sold will have their operating system built in and the
rumors that Apple TV 2.0 will be released in the summer of 2012, the TV as we
know it is about to change forever.  We
want you to help us disrupt the $500 billion TV industry.
With change comes opportunity: The Interactive TV unlocks the
ability for companies like Inveni to solve problems that have plagued the TV
watching experience for years. We now have more things to watch than ever, but
good luck finding them with a guide that has barely changed since the dawn of
broadcast television. It currently takes users an average of 8-10 minutes to
decide what to watch. That is unacceptable!
Inveni has been working in stealth mode for 2 years building a
platform to take advantage of this ENORMOUS opportunity to become one of the
next tech giants.  We are now able to
pull together live TV and all the big
streaming sources, sort those options according to your preferences, browse
them on your TV or your mobile device, and play your choice with one click. R.I.P.
