On March 9, 2016, Legion M launched the world’s FIRST fan-owned company and they shared this with those who attended Silicon Valley Comic Con! I got to have a quick chat with the founders, Paul and Jeff (pictured above) to get a bit more information.
Fans who decide to invest are involved in the creation process of different types of projects including movie and TV! Their model is simple: “With Legion M, FANS own the company, FANS get behind-the-scenes, and when we are successful—FANS share the rewards!”
“Legion M is opening the gates to Hollywood and giving Fans the opportunity to be a part of the creation of new content. We’re building a legion of ONE MILLION Fans to empower creators and make great content.” said Paul Scanlan, CEO and co-founder of Legion M. “After all, Fans are the reason that content exists, and for the first time in history, we are inviting Fans into Hollywood’s inner circle.”
“The core of Legion M is the community,” says Jeff Annison, President and co-founder of Legion M. “By offering the public equity in our company and inviting them into the development process, we’re building a legion of Fans who are both emotionally and financially invested in our projects’ success. What could be more powerful than 1 million Fans working to help make content a hit?”
I would just like to say that I had a blast chatting with these guys. They were so personable and full of knowledge. Any question you could think of, they had a legit response. They are very passionate about this and it really shows.
