Foundation’s management team has a long history of working with some of the world's most prestigious brands and the individuals behind them. Contemporary, innovative, and creatively driven entertainment strategies have become the basis of our relationships with our brand partners. We pride ourselves on finding strategic alliances with existing entertainment companies, as well as helping non-entertainment companies enter the space to help grow their brand and make an immediate impact.
With Foundation’s alliance with Build-A-Bear Workshop, we have taken what was already a well-established, unique and highly successful retailer and created strategic partnerships with top companies such as Wal-Mart. Our team played a key role in placing full Build-A-Bear shops inside select Wal-Mart locations.
Foundation also facilitated the launch and oversees the continued success of Build-A-Bear Entertainment. You can read more about our projects with Build-A-Bear here.
