HIGHLIGHTS

  • The company behind the #AlexFromTarget Twitter phenomenon.

ELEVATOR PITCH

Breakr is a multi-platform network that helps content creators distribute their content, build their fan-base and convert their reach money in their pockets from mobile to web and OTT devices.

COMPANY OVERVIEW

Why We Started This Company

Breakr was formed to solve the challenges of scaling a multi-channel network. At the end of the day, the MCN’s do not own the users/subscribers – the larger platforms like YouTube, Vine, Instagram and Twitter do. We saw the need for content creators to distribute and grow their distribution while connecting fans to their fandom.

What Sets Us Apart

Breakr provides content creators and influencers a content distribution network; where their fans can chat, create, share and consume content together within a breakroom. Also, the platform features e-commerce technology driving additional revenue through digital and physical product sales.

Our Keys To Success

By leveraging our current relationships with social media influencer/content creators and influencer marketing companies, we can reach critical mass fast by providing a platform for their creators to grow fan-bases and distribute their content. Brands and entertainment studios partnerships will help drive more traffic and ad revenue into the multi-platform network.
