Such a strategic alliance kicked off with the global release of electrifying covers featuring Jay Chou. As a result of this alliance, ENVISEAM has successfully anchored its Pre-Series A funding round, with L’OFFICIEL leading the way. This partnership signifies the start of an exciting journey where L’OFFICIEL, ENVISEAM, and key partners like Jay Chou will combine and synergize all parties’ global networks and outreach to deliver world-class contents with L’OFFICIEL’s ambition, led by Chairman Dr. Calvin Choi to establish a one stop world-connected multimedia platform to include print and digital channels, coupled with events and experiences, together with diverse content ranging from art, culture, fashion, entertainment to music. ENVISEAM, led by CEO Jazz Li, aims to reshape economic paradigms with culture and deep intellectual property ("deep IP"), in long term partnership with L’OFFICIEL globally. This marks a pivotal moment in redefining global creativity and disrupting the landscape of traditional media and content.
Dr. Calvin Choi, Chairman of AMTD Group Inc. and L’Officiel Inc. SAS, expressed his enthusiasm for this collaboration, stating, "At AMTD, with the announced acquisitions of L’Officiel and The Art Newspaper, we tell the world loudly about our ambition to build a world-connected multimedia one stop platform for art, culture, fashion, entertainment, and music contents, together with our network of business partners and clients. The strategic alliance between L’Officiel and ENVISEAM is a part of such global build-out."
Founded in 2019, ENVISEAM has achieved remarkable milestones in its relatively short history. It has pioneered the creation of original fine-art intellectual property and crafted unique experiential events, both in individual capacities and in partnership with elements from the fine art and entertainment world. ENVISEAM’s "Art Colure With Artistes" series of exhibitions, with L’Officiel Art as a strategic partner, has swiftly left an indelible mark on the fine art industry, while its unparalleled expertise and expansive network within the domains of fine art and entertainment have garnered the attention of influential thought leaders, governments, and media entities, collaboratively and collectively seeking to advance their cultural identities and narratives.
Mr. Jazz Li, Founder & CEO of ENVISEAM, envisions a future where culture and profound intellectual property (which he terms “deep IP”) will drive economic paradigms. ENVISEAM aspires to be at the epicenter of this transformative shift in lifestyles by transcending the boundaries of fine art and entertainment, and partnering long term with AMTD and L’Officiel.
