Bastian Manintveld is the Co-Founder & Executive Chairman of 2btube, a digital media group specializing in Spanish language content. Bastian started his career in television, working at On Demand Group in the UK and Spain before launching his first venture BeBanjo in 2008. BeBanjo was acquired by TDF Group in 2011.

In this episode, Bastian and I discuss how digital media defies traditional boundaries and shapes a global culture. Bastian first witnessed this generational shift at home when his kids lost interest in broadcast TV, turning instead to social platforms like YouTube. Bastian argues that online creators pioneered a new approach to building global audiences – one in which traditional borders, nationalities, and accents no longer matter. And finally, Bastian shares the key to successful partnerships and acquisitions, anticipates increased consolidation as media players battle for scale, and predicts that movie theaters will survive the pandemic.
