LOS ANGELES, May 12, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Metacurio, the leading Web3 creative agency for Hollywood A-list talent and global brands, today announced the launch of a new joint venture with VS Media, a leading digital media and social commerce network based in Hong Kong that is built by and for creators across Greater China. The company will be headquartered out of Singapore and called Metacurio VS Singapore.
Metacurio VS Singapore will be the exclusive home for VS Media and its IP across segments like NFT creation, marketing, and distribution. Metacurio will provide to the new company its deep expertise in Web3 creative strategy, artist curation, crypto-native market services, NFT buyer curation, gamification, and collectibility strategies. It also brings to Metacurio VS Singapore its unrivaled client base, with over 70 relationships with A-list talent and corporate brands.
The relationship cements Metacurio's global reach, especially with creative millennials across Asia. Founded in 2013 and headquartered in Hong Kong, VS Media has over 1,000 client relationships and more than 200 million worldwide fans, including over 150 million in Greater China. Investors in the company include Discovery Communications.
"We want to give our extensive network of creators, influencers, and audiences the best tools possible to connect with each other and leverage value from creative work," said Ivy Wong, Founder of VS Media. "By leveraging VS Media's deep relationship reach, in partnership with Metacurio's deep expertise in web3, Metacurio VS Singapore is better positioned than any other company in Greater China to build up the creator economy in web3. Together we are excited for the groundbreaking creation of this first-of-its-kind joint venture."
"We are incredibly excited to partner with our friends at VS Media, a world leader in their space. Metacurio VS Singapore cements Metacurio's truly global reach, especially with creative millennials across Asia, a region which still remains largely untapped by the crypto community," said Metacurio Co-Founder and CEO Jeff Hood.
"Having spent a decade of my career working with some of China's most prominent investors and media entities, I have experienced firsthand how Asia is a cultural hub of art, music, film, and entertainment for the entire world, and we are excited to expand that reach even further in web3. Metacurio VS Singapore is a reflection of our commitment at Metacurio to build meaningful web3 communities across the world," said Metacurio Co-Founder and Executive Chair Sophie Watts.
