Open Sesame

Southern CA


Open Sesame is one of the top startups to graduate from the joint Quake Capital/Deutsche Telekom 5G accelerator program. The company has developed a technology platform that addresses the issue of latency – a huge challenge in fields such as fintech, education, telecom, digital collaboration, and others. Open Sesame has developed a platform called ‘Genie’ that allows carriers to sell the emotional benefits of 5G to consumers. Its launch application with the carriers that use Genie is called ‘World Karaoke’ – a voice-first social singing experience that uses the extreme low latency of 5G to allow people to sing together when they are not together. The company has gained early traction with four of the Tier 1 telco’s (Deutsche Telekom, Orange, Telefonica, and KDDI).
