Japanese holding Brave Group has announced its next global market for expansion, this time penetrating the European market. As part of the market expansion, it has also opened the VTuber agency Globie, and is now welcoming auditions.
Auditions for 'Globie' will run up until June 26. Interested applicants must meet the standard age of 18 and above to audition, with in-person screening processes set to also happen. Learn more about the audition process from their official website.
Brave Group Europe, with an office address located in London, United Kingdom, has also opened FavieBox, an e-commerce site operated by the company aimed at selling anime and VTuber-related goods in the future.
According to the European subsidiary, they aim to build a multi-lingual talent lineup for their agency. In the future, they would be focusing more on tapping talents that speak Spanish, French, and German.
The new update comes weeks after Brave Group announced its expansion to North America with the establishment of its regional subsidiary Brave Group USA, addressed at California, USA. Included in said expansion is the launch of its first English-speaking agency V4Mirai. They are composed of talents Abi Kadabura and Serina Maiko.
The company previously raised ¥300 million in funding (~US$2.33 million) from Hong Kong-based venture company Animoca Brands. Said funding will strengthen Brave Group’s Web3 initiatives, further grow the company’s multiple businesses in the metaverse space, and accelerate global expansion.
Some of other overseas-related endeavors from Brave Group include the appearance of Riot Music's sub-label Meteopolis at the Los Angeles Comic Con on November 2022, appearance of Riot Music's Yuka Nagase at the AFA Singapore event in September 2022, and Riot Music's partnership with MyAnimeList on August 2021.
