Accelerate global development of music IP from Japan in Indonesia
Tokyo, May. 30, 2022 — Brave group, a virtual IP business based in Japan, is announcing partnership with Bahtera Musik Indonesia Inc., a company which operates Billboard Indonesia, with the aim of expanding our virtual artists’ business globally.
To drive the growth further, the two parties have formed a powerful combination to expand Brave group’s virtual artists’ business and IP in the Republic of Indonesia, increasing their name recognition and exploring the possibility of profitable business together.
Billboard Indonesia is the Indonesian version of Billboard, that U.S. media brand that publishes the music industry magazine “Billboard” and operates the “Billboard Hot 100”, a globally recognized U.S. music chart. The company is a leading source of charts, news, and original videos for local music fans and the industry, as well as a favored source of inspiration for all those involved with music.
Nowadays Economic growth and GDP of Indonesia have grown rapidly. Indonesia is also known as the fourth most populous country in the world with 270 million people.Also the average age of the population is 28, which is higher than in other countries for the social networking generation, and awareness of virtual artists, a culture that originated in Japan, is expanding.
For this partnership, Keito Noguchi, CEO of Brave group said: I was looking for an opportunity to reach more and more music fans living overseas and Otaku culture to be a top virtual music production in the world. In such a situation, I’m very honored to be able to develop our business with Billboard Indonesia in Indonesia, a country with many young people and a high level of understanding of Japanese culture. We have built our track record by creating virtual artists and other IP from scratch. First of all, we hope to utilize those IPs and promote the appeal of RIOT MUSIC while promoting monetization.
Wilson Chang, CEO of Bahtera Musik Indonesia Inc. said: While discussions with Brave group, we were greatly attracted by their enthusiasm for contents, their track record, and their personalities, and decided to collaborate with them. We will leverage Brave group’s strength in virtual character development and our strength as an infrastructure to disseminate information to the Indonesian market. We hope to spread how to enjoy virtual entertainment both to those who already know about it and to users who are new to it.
