Everyone has his price, and Pearpop can prove it. This auction site, cofounded by former fashion model Mason and talent manager Guy Oseary, lets social media users bid on collaborat­ions with top talent. A TikTok comment from Snoop Dogg starts at $250, while a video from the DJ Marshmello goes for at least $25,000. Pearpop also has celebrity investors: Amy Schumer, Diddy and Kevin Hart have all contribute­d to the $20 million the Los Angeles–based startup has raised. “Before Pearpop, there was no way to get someone to collaborat­e with you at the level of Snoop Dogg,” Mason says. “I just wanted to give everyone access.”
