CREATV Media M&A, Financing & Strategic Partnerships - Case Studies

CREATV Media advises companies -- ranging from major media companies and brands to early stage tech/digital media start-ups -- in connection with strategic partnerships, financing and M&A.  Our services range from strategy, target identification and asset positioning -- to business diligence, process execution and integration.  

Right now, CREATV Media advises several companies in M&A ranging in value from the tens of millions of dollars to several hundreds of millions of dollars, including (1) an innovative video company with break-through mobile technology and highly-pedigreed team, (2) a leading and highly profitable digital-first video production company with several compelling brands of its own, (3) a major iconic music-related property, and (4) a major library of iconic intellectual property ideal for premium video development and multi-platform distribution.  

On the strategic investment and business development side, CREATV Media served as the "eyes and ears" for a major international media company, identifying the most compelling digital-first media investment opportunities, and making relevant introductions that led to direct investments in excess of $10 million in one such target company (that has since become the category/market leader and innovator).  In another case, CREATV Media recently identified a new highly-pedigreed digital-first video startup-related venture opportunity for a major Chinese entity.

CREATV Media Chairman Peter Csathy's new book Media 2.0(17): An Insider's Guide of Today's Digital Media World lays out why we are believers -- and why LA is the epicenter of deep digital media and tech innovation.

We want to work with the best -- and then give them the best opportunities to succeed.

Check out this month's "CREATV Media: In the Spotlight" feature on CREATV team member, Steve Hansen and Founder/CEO of RatherBe (   Steve has been running digital-first companies since he left Universal Studios in 1997, just as the internet was starting to gain real traction. Steve joined GeoCities and was fundamental in leading it to a multi-billion dollar exit with Yahoo!  Steve has since done everything from a data storage company, to youth sports, e-commerce, and even digital publishing.

After deciding it was time to start his own company, Steve turned to his passion for the active and outdoor lifestyle and founded Ratherbe to be the definitive multi-platform media company that focuses on the active/outdoor lifestyle and fuses great premium content with community and commerce.  Steve brings his entrepreneurial skills and deep network to CREATV Media to benefit clients and investments.
