GALESBURG, Ill., Jan. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Antipodal Talent International, a cross-cultural consulting firm and talent agency, today announced the launch of its Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to raise $200,000.  The company assists small and medium-sized U.S. businesses wanting to introduce their products into the Chinese marketplace while spreading cultural awareness about U.S.-China relations. 

As part of its crowdfunding campaign, Antipodal Talent will give away full-service consulting packages pairing a client's brand with a Chinese-national model who can represent it in China.  But this campaign represents more than just an opportunity for global-minded businesses.  It is also a chance for socially-responsible companies to bridge the cultural divide between the U.S. and China. 

"China has the fastest growing middle class in the world, representing billions of dollars in disposable income with an appetite for U.S. brands and lifestyle products," says Grant Gulovsen, the entrepreneur behind Antipodal Talent.  "We want to put our clients in the best possible position to succeed in this dynamic market."

Antipodal Talent's team of fashion, glamor and fitness models, all of whom are Chinese nationals, can successfully introduce U.S. brands to Chinese consumers while also advocating cultural awareness. Every time an Antipodal Talent model travels to the U.S. to work on an advertising campaign, they will be available to take part in media interviews, speaking events, and educational seminars to spread awareness of the cultural similarities between China and the U.S.

Antipodal Talent's crowdfunding campaign is currently being hosted on and will continue until February 25, 2016.  Contributions will go towards getting Antipodal Talent's brand representatives to the U.S. so they can begin promoting cultural activism and awareness.

Campaign backers can support Antipodal Talent through a wide range of perks that include t-shirts, calendars, and more.
