Video creators can easily add soundtracks to their footage using Jukedeck’s artificially intelligent online composer, Jukedeck MAKE. The tool lets users create unique, customisable and – most importantly – royalty-free music for their movies in seconds. Within 18 months Jukedeck has gone from a team of two to one of twelve, and music generated using its composer has been featured in more than 1,000 YouTube videos. In December 2015 the company raised £2 million in funding in a round led by Cambridge Innovation Capital. In the same month it won a £30,000 cash prize in the TechCrunch Disrupt startup competition.
