“We’re excited to align with IZEA in being ‘Diverse Since Day One’ - a shared value between our companies to normalize equality, bolstering opportunities for all digital creators”, states founder Kyle Hjelmeseth. “This partnership will allow us to work together to expand the idea of what influencers mean in society, building a positive relationship among consumers, brands, and talent both on and offline.”

Like G&B, invited members to IZEA’s Talent Partner Program, receive enhanced opportunities for sponsorship deal flow through direct collaboration with IZEA’s consultative Managed Service unit, preferred talent inclusion in both the IZEAx and Shake creator networks, first-look availability into IZEA’s proprietary research initiatives, and exclusive briefing sessions.
