"As purveyors of premium talent with relevance both online and offline, we're thrilled to partner with ACTIVATE to better quantify and present the digital influence of our talent network," said Erin Cutler, Founder, Neon Rose Agency. "Leveraging technology such as ACTIVATE's new Talent Management tool enables us to facilitate meaningful digital partnerships more efficiently."
"Scaling our digital influencers' business is always top of mind. It seems every day we are searching for a more efficient way to pitch, manage, negotiate, and communicate because every brand partnership is an opportunity for something greater," said Rich Inman, Head of Business Development, God & Beauty. "We're thrilled to have a tool that allows us to manage key elements of a partnership all in one place, enabling us to save time and connect our clients with truly aligned brands."

"Through technology, we want to empower managers to spend more time on the work that counts."
"People are at the heart of our business, and we do our best work when we have a deep knowledge of each influencer - what they're passionate about, where they are in their lives - and these new tools help make that information accessible from Talent Managers to brands," says Lauren McGrath, VP Studio & Strategy at ACTIVATE.
