At the same time, we’re able to connect our partner brands with creators to create mutually beneficial relationships.”
“We understand the value that content creators bring to the table” Justin Simpao, General Manager of Discover Management stated. “At the same time, we can help influencers deal with niche situations that arise from the growing ecosystem of influencer business. This includes curating partnerships, innovating ways to help our creators grow their personal brand, and handling the complex administrative details such as self-incorporation and finance management.”
