B The Biz
● The problem
With an undeveloped market in Latin America and rising demand, there were few professional players on the podcast scene

05A media platform/agency model
Their original productions lead to creating a closed platform model, with monetization coming through brand productions.
This resulted in a suitable approach for a growing market, as ads require bigger audiences, crowdfunding works best for one product at a time and subscription models put friction on people to consume.
