In 2016 Adam and Jason Perry set about the ambitious task of building a live event around YouTubers. Eleven came on board in the early stages of concept development. We’ve helped Adam and Jason with the commercial architecture of the event. We’ve used our network and expertise to assist with: (i) talent deals; (ii) broadcast deals; (iii) getting a production partner on board; and (iv) securing investment. HelloWorld illustrates perfectly that when we find a project we're truly passionate about we will invest our time and value across the business and share in the upside together. We can’t wait for the first run of the show in October 2017 which will feature some of the world’s most famous online talent.
