Together, HyperCollective (along with its collaborators PING Digital Broadcast Network and WindChimes Communications) and Nestlé India's brand team have started working on some original branded content, social campaigns and experiential content.

Sharing his vision, Pops, says in a press release, "The need of the hour is cocreation, collaboration with swiftness and agility. There is no single agency that excels in all four areas of content, communication, technology, and strategy. Through HyperCollective we have got on board some of the sharpest minds in these areas who have been pushing the envelope through their work. Our clients will have full access to all our collaborators at all times. As required, collaborators can be on-boarded in short span of time. Furthermore, we can add newer competencies in a blink of an eye. Collectively, we will orchestrate brand story seamlessly across platforms to cater to today's always on world."

HyperCollective has been in 'stealth mode' for the past several months, working for global brands and a handful of large Indian companies. Acting up on Nestlé India's vision, it has helped set-up Live Content Studio in Nestlé's office in Gurugram. It took HyperCollective four weeks to set up the model for Nestlé.
