Forum3 Launches Hive3: Connecting Brands with AI Creators

Must read

Crumbl Cookies joins top AI creators, including Heather Cooper, Tatiana Tsiguleva, Nicolas Neubert, and Ben Myhre, to re-imagine brand marketing using AI.

Forum3, a technology company that builds experiences for brands and consumers using emerging technologies, is announcing the launch of Hive3. This new platform connects brands with generative AI creators to deliver innovative marketing assets. Hive3 mobilizes a passionate community of creators and runs competitions to reimagine brand marketing and uncover future possibilities using AI.

Hive3 has been operating in beta mode since July 2023. The platform has hosted ten community-driven challenges. AI creators have competed to deliver the best creative work—from solar sneaks to a futuristic take on outdoor apparel—winning cash prizes and rewards from their favorite brands.

“The new digital transformation playbook starts with brands understanding how to use AI, and the Forum3 team is uniquely positioned to guide brands as they navigate this technology, often for the first time,” said Adam Brotman, co-CEO of Forum3 and former Chief Digital Officer of Starbucks. “We look forward to partnering with forward-thinking brands like Crumbl Cookies to generate new types of creative output, activate a community of customers, and elevate brand marketing using AI.”

To kick off Hive3’s public launch, Crumbl Cookies, the fastest-growing dessert chain in the nation that drops new cookie flavors weekly through its rotating menu, will be tapping the Hive3 community to create a new, AI-powered twist on its advertising campaigns.

“Crumbl Cookies has always sought to bring novel and creative ideas to our customers, from specialty flavors to our iconic pink packaging,” said Mai Pham, EVP of Growth at Crumbl Cookies. “The next frontier of marketing innovation is generative AI, and we look forward to being the first brand to partner with Hive3 on a challenge where top AI creators will leverage their skills to create an exciting new ad campaign for our brand.”

Early creators signed on as Hive3 Ambassadors include Heather Cooper, Tatiana Tsiguleva, Nicolas Neubert, and Ben Myhre. These influential creators will play an active role in contributing to the Hive3 community through tutorials, events, judging, and participating in co-branded competitions. This will enable brands to leverage the power of top AI creative talent to ideate their marketing initiatives in entirely new ways.

“Hive3 is built around competitions because we believe that will attract the very best creative AI talent to our community,” said Andy Sack, co-CEO of Forum3. “The top AI creators will be the ones to inspire and educate brands and community members about what is possible in the fast-evolving landscape of AI, and Hive3 will be the platform where it all comes together.”

Hive3 is now officially accepting briefs from marketers who wish to up-level their creative game, explore AI technology in a safe environment, and win over customers with marketing that stands out. The platform is also open to AI creators who want to compete for cash prizes and enthusiasts looking to follow their favorite brands and talent.
