As part of the companies’ strategic collaboration, bemyfriends is developing additional functions for the website that will streamline its fan management and business operations.

"Thanks to our strategic partnership with Dreamus Company, we will strive to unleash the infinite power of the fandom business in any industry, not just in content and entertainment," said Brice Lee, co-CEO of bemyfriends.
