New networking app HUSSLUP for creative talent discovery is launching on Thursday as part of SeriesFest in Denver.
Founded by former media executive H. Schuster, the app launched in beta in February and will now release its official app for bringing together creative professionals in the aim to change how Hollywood sources talent. The platform was part of an accelerator program with Comcast NBCUniversal LIFT Labs that helps companies develop partnerships with them. The app will be invite-only initially.
NBCU is taking part in the Beta and HUSSLUP is also part of the 2021 class of the Comcast NBCUniversal LIFT Labs Accelerator, powered by Techstars (which are both also investors).
