HUSSLUP is a groundbreaking app that makes talent discovery in media and entertainment more efficient and more diverse by connecting 50M creatives worldwide to each other and to the companies that need them. We are building a platform where users can discover professional opportunities, make meaningful connections and fast forward their creative careers.
HUSSLUP is a mission-oriented company backed by Techstars and Comcast NBCUniversal LIFT Labs. Other investors include C-suite executives and founders of major media companies.
For our invite-only Beta, we are partnered with over 20 premiere productions companies and studios, including Universal Studio Group, Universal Pictures, Blumhouse, Westbrook, and AGBO. And our list of companies continues to grow. Our DEI partners include, Women in Film, NALIP, and Outfest, among others.
But the talent discovery process in the $2T/year media and entertainment business is broken. Execs still search for writers, producers, directors, and others through personal relationships and rarely get out of their cliques, which makes it challenging for new and diverse talent to break in.
Enter HUSSLUP! We believe in the power of creatives when we come together to connect, collaborate, and professionalize.
