Amsterdam, 24th October 2023 – Azerion has taken a minority stake in the youth-focused media house Just Another Media Company (JAMC), based in Amsterdam. JAMC owns various online titles such as RUMAG, ParraTV, SoWhat!, Nieuwskamer, and Darum. Additionally, it produces and licenses ComplexNL, the largest platform targeting millennials and Gen Z worldwide, originally from the United States and providing news on pop and street culture, streetwear and style, music, sneakers, and sports. JAMC also serves as a sales agent for branded content propositions across various other platforms.
Michel Palmen, Managing Director of JAMC, states, "Since its establishment in 2021, JAMC has demonstrated impressive growth in reach and revenue, focusing on a challenging demographic: youngsters. The partnership with Azerion was already established in the area of advertising sales. That makes the participation strategic: together we can enhance the online and video reach of our platforms by leveraging our digital advertising sales more effectively."
Marcel Schuyt, Country Director of Azerion Benelux, also sees significant opportunities with JAMC's branded content offerings, “JAMC produces its own branded (video) content, specifically tailored for and created by young people. Over the past years, the team has produced content for numerous prominent A-brands such as adidas, KFC, Coca-Cola, Hugo Boss, Disney, Red Bull and more, demonstrating their ability not only to reach this important target group but also to speak their language and translate it into excellent productions for A-brands. We see great potential in working together with JAMC and are delighted with this strategic partnership."
