Assemble has had an incredible start to 2019. Upon finishing the 500 Startups program in San Francisco in February, they went on to close out their seed round and continue to show explosive growth. Since their founding, they’ve worked with clients such as Warner Brothers, Lufthansa Airlines and American Express, and are now deploying capital to finalize development of their enterprise creative collaboration platform. Assemble has created a global platform where brands can connect with an invite-only network of creative talent (such as directors, photographers, copywriters and more), and then utilize their end-to-end creative collaboration platform to work together to create content. While the platform is already live and embedded with many major brands and agencies, look for Assemble to have more major announcements in the coming months as they finalize additional product milestones.
