Technology platform for creators, Talenthouse AG, has acquired independent international media group and rights owner Coolabi Group. Talenthouse and Coolabi plan to connect the IP and creator economy spaces, initially through gaming and in the metaverse. Additionally, this will open exclusive opportunities for Talenthouse’s creative community to produce assets for Coolabi’s global brands.
Jeremy Banks, chief executive officer, Coolabi; Tim Ricketts, chief operating officer, Coolabi and Chris Snowdon, managing director, Working Partners, join creative, financial and advertising entrepreneurs Clare McKeeve, chief executive officer, Talenthouse, and founders Maya Bogle and Roman Scharf on the leadership team to push the group into a new era of creative endeavors.
“The team is thrilled to welcome Jeremy Banks and the Coolabi team into the Talenthouse family and combine their content generation capabilities and younger audience reach to supplement the 18 million members within Talenthouse’s community,” says McKeeve. “We strongly believe that the acquisition will result in new routes to market and maximize our potential within existing international markets.”
“We are pleased to be joining Clare McKeeve and the highly regarded Talenthouse team through this acquisition,” says Banks. “Their extensive, diverse and engaged creative community strongly ties into what we do here at Coolabi and our ambitions for the future. The merging of both groups will allow us to offer more of what we do best: create stories, brands and content that excites and entertains children across the globe.”
