The talent management vertical seeks to create a powerful, well-built mechanism that not only enables but empowers the creative talent of this country. Their focal point is the overall development and growth of an artist by facilitating quality content creation (from ideation to post-production) and higher visibility in the booming digital landscape. Alongside encouraging a culture of collaboration with talents from diverse genres and relevant brands – Ignite Edge will work with their artists on multiple aspects of talent management, including creating a brand for themselves and promoting them by running PR pegs.
Mike Melli – Co-founder & CRO | MissMalini Entertainment, said, “Ignite Edge assists artists to create unique content coupled with engaging stories by strategizing and molding itself with changing times. We aim to provide talents with an edge in the world of digital showbiz by not just managing them but by creating opportunities for them in their digital journey.”
