"It's a collective movement of creatives nurturing and supporting collaborations with some of the Industry's most visionary talent and inspiring influences. There’s so much emerging talent out there and everybody has the same problem: they have nowhere to go, nobody knows they exist. I realized this because people Facebook me, they Twitter me, they Instagram me — how am I supposed to remember all this? I’m not a database. Time is money and we’re running out of time!”. - B. Åkerlund
