mediaX at Stanford University
mediaX took its strength from Stanford’s thought leadership—the faculty, students, courses, and the research programs that receive support from federal agencies and private foundations. Working closely with over two dozen interdisciplinary labs at Stanford, mediaX looked to build bridges among scholars and thought leaders from influential companies to address questions of real importance within both academia and industry.
Fundamental to the mediaX vision was the belief that the program served two customers: industry partners that affiliate with the program, and the research community within Stanford University. At its close, mediaX 33 industry partners, and has funded over $5M of Stanford research involving around 115 faculty.
