Fostering emerging talent.

Still reaping the rewards of her breakout role in Game of Thrones, Maisie Williams is now planning to help other creatives get recognised.

She’s launching a new app called Daisie, with the aim to connect creative talents and help newcomers gain exposure for their work.

Currently four months into a 10-month build, the app is expected to launch in August of this year. Working in collaboration with film producer Dom Santry, Williams is hoping to create an industry-specific platform where users can network, share and collaborate on projects.

It will also be a potential source of new talent for the pair’s UK production company, Daisy Chain Productions, which works on youth and talent development projects.

Free of ads, Daisie will make revenue through its ‘Plus’ program, which allows users to open locked areas of the site and access additional features – like the ability to toggle a ‘looking for work’ setting on and off.

“I want Daisie to give other creatives the opportunities that I was lucky enough to receive at the beginning of my career,” said Williams in an interview with Tech Crunch. “Daisie will break down the archaic gap between youth and creative jobs; offering new opportunities for individuals to collaborate, learn and create – establishing a new way for talented individuals to be discovered and employed,” she said.”
