On August 11, Joe Biden picked Kamala Harris as his choice for vice president on his 2020 ticket. Harris, a Democratic senator for California, has also held positions as district attorney for San Francisco and attorney general for the state. She has homes in both LA and San Francisco. California Gov. Gavin Newsom campaigned for Harris in Iowa in December 2019. Forbes reported that an overwhelming majority of her 2019 donors came from California and she unsurprisingly has a fan base in the two power centers of the state — Hollywood and Silicon Valley. In 2019, The Hollywood Reporter noted that almost half of the entertainment industry's key players in its THR 100 list had made donations to Harris' campaign in its early stages.

Representatives for Kamala Harris didn't immediately respond to Business Insider's request for comment. SEE ALSO: Kamala Harris, Joe Biden's VP pick, comes from a family of lawyers and Stanford graduates.

When Harris ran for reelection as California's attorney general in 2014, Benioff cohosted a fundraiser for her campaign, according to a tweet from Recode's Teddy Schleifer. "Kamala is one of the highest-integrity people I've ever met and is a phenomenal prosecutor," Benioff told Recode in February 2019. "She is truly an impressive leader with a strong legal and public service background." However, Benioff is unlikely to publicly support the Harris-Biden ticket in the run-up to the 2020 election: earlier this year, he told Recode that since buying Time Magazine, he will "no longer make political positions or funding." Harris attended Facebook cofounder Sean Parker's wedding in 2013. Harris and Facebook billionaire Sean Parker appear to be longtime friends. When Parker got married in a lavish California ceremony in 2013, Harris was in attendance.  Parker has donated to Harris' campaigns in the past, cohosting her attorney general reelection fundraiser in 2014 and contributing to her senatorial run in 2015.  In late 2019, Parker was slated to host a fundraiser for Harris' presidential campaign at his home in Los Angeles, which was canceled when Harris suspended her campaign in December. Laurene Powell Jobs has already voiced her support for Harris as Biden's vice presidential pick. Shortly after news broke that Biden had selected Harris as his running mate, Jobs, the founder of Emerson Collective and widow of late Apple CEO Steve Jobs, tweeted her support. "Joe Biden you made a great choice!" she wrote. Jobs has been a supporter of Harris since at least 2014, and donated to her Senate campaign in 2015. When Jobs was interviewed by journalist Kara Swisher at Recode's Code Conference in 2017, she brought Harris along because she thought "you would find it more interesting," as Recode's Teddy Schleifer noted.  And in 2018, Jobs interviewed Harris at the Aspen Ideas Festival, where they discussed President Donald Trump and Harris' views on a lack of bipartisanship in congress.  Jobs also donated to Harris' campaign for president before Harris left the race last year, according to The Wall Street Journal.   Harris helped Sheryl Sandberg promote her book "Lean In" in 2013. Harris and Sandberg, Facebook's chief operating officer, have been public allies since 2013, when Harris helped Sandberg promote her best-seller, "Lean In." As part of a PR campaign for the book, Sandberg asked Harris to supply a photo of herself and an example of a time she "leaned in." In 2015, Harris participated in a talk with Sandberg on cyberbullying at Facebook's headquarters in Menlo Park, California, according to Huffington Post.  When Harris ran for Senate in 2016, Sandberg contributed to her campaign, giving the maximum amount legally allowed for an individual donor, Huffington Post reported. When she won, per the report, Sandberg told her by email, "CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!! We need you now more than ever." On Tuesday, Sandberg posted on Instagram about Harris' nomination, writing that it's "a huge moment for Black women and girls all over the world – and for all of us."

Many notable tech CEOs and investors have raised money for Harris in the past, though not all have publicly endorsed the Harris/Biden ticket yet: Former Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and her husband, Zach Bogue, cohosted a fundraiser for Harris' reelection campaign for attorney general in 2014. Mayer also donated to Harris' Senate campaign in 2015, according to VentureBeat. Kleiner Perkins' John Doerr and his wife, Khan Academy Chairman Ann Doerr, also cohosted the fundraiser and donated to Harris in 2015, as did SV Angels founder Ron Conway. John Doerr also contributed to her presidential campaign, according to Recode.  Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky has been a Harris donor in the past, both when she served as attorney general and when she ran for Senate.  Former Apple design chief Jony Ive supported Harris' bid for reelection as attorney general. Former eBay CEO and current Nike CEO John Donahoe contributed to Harris' Senate campaign in 2015. David Drummond, Google's former chief legal officer, donated to Harris in 2015. LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman raised money for Harris' presidential bid, according to The Wall Street Journal. Twitter board member Omid Kordestani and his wife, Gisel, both contributed the maximum individual amount of Harris' presidential campaign, according to the Journal.  Zynga founder Marc Pincus is a longtime supporter, hosting a fundraiser for her Senate campaign in 2016, the Journal reports.  JJ Abrams, a filmmaker best known for his involvement with the recent "Star Wars" trilogy, called her "the real deal" and "a powerhouse" in a 2013 Vanity Fair article. Abrams has written for Vanity Fair that he and his wife, Katie McGrath, first met Harris when she was the district attorney of San Francisco and they became friends.  "What struck me upon hearing her speak was that we had stumbled upon the most unusual of creatures: an authentically inspiring human being who happened to be in politics," he said.  Abrams and McGrath hosted a fundraiser for Harris at their home in March 2019. Shonda Rhimes was a co-chair. Each co-chair donated $10,000 and the tickets were priced at $2,800, which is the primary election maximum. Harris once called Universal Pictures Chairwoman Donna Langley "an advocate for vital voices" at a 2014 Vanity Fair event. At Vanity Fair's Power of Women event, Harris introduced Donna Langley on stage with praise for her advocacy work and her successful career as a studio executive.  After Biden announced his pick, Langley told Variety, "Kamala demonstrates a level of passion, grace and grit, that separated her from the pack. I've always believed in her leadership and she is the right VP candidate to face the challenges our country has ahead of us." Vanity Fair reported that Langley has supported Harris since around the time of her bid for attorney general in 2010.  Other top NBC executives such as Jeffrey Katzenberg and Jeff Shell have put their support behind Harris. The LA Times reported that Katzenberg, the former DreamWorks Animation top dog, donated $2,800 to Harris' presidential campaign in 2o19. He also donated to her competition in the initially crowded field of contenders for the Democratic nomination.  Shell, the CEO of NBCUniversal, opened the doors to his Beverly Hills home for a Harris fundraiser in February 2019. The guest list included Katzenberg, Eva Longoria, and Scooter Braun. Ron Meyer, vice chairman of NBCUniversal, contributed $2,800. Harris has been an associate of the Getty family for several decades, even attending the wedding of Billy, George and Ann Getty's son, in 1999. According to a 2019 Politico story, Harris had Sunday dinners with the Getty family, heirs to one of America's great oil fortunes, from early on in her political career in the late 1990s, when she was deputy district attorney for Alameda County. The same story reported that Harris was seen at social events at the time with Gavin Newsom, who was then a city supervisor and is now the governor of the state. It has been widely reported that Newsom was a friend and business partner of the Gettys. (The Los Angeles Times reported in 2018 that eight prominent and wealthy San Francisco families supported Newsom's political career, including the Gettys.) George and Ann Getty contributed to Harris' presidential campaign. However, as Forbes reported, in keeping with the Biden campaign's promise to not receive any donations from executives with ties with the oil industry, it's unlikely that a Biden-Harris ticket will see any future contributions from the Getty family. Harris has enjoyed support from other Hollywood A-listers stretching all the way back to her bid for district attorney in 2004. Spike Lee hosted a sold-out fundraiser for Harris' presidential campaign at his house in Massachusetts and the tickets were priced between $100 and $2,800. David Robb reported for Deadline that before Biden entered the presidential race, Harris was the clear favorite among the Hollywood set as A-listers such as including George Lucas, Chris Rock, and Shonda Rhimes were some of those who contributed the maximum amount allowed in a primary election, $2,800.  "This Is Us" creator Dan Fogelman gave Harris' campaign $5,600, split between the primary and the general election. Harris also got upwards of $5,000 from Eva Longoria and Elizabeth Banks.  Other key players in Hollywood have supported Harris in past election efforts. For instance, actor Jamie Foxx, supermodel and TV host Tyra Banks, and filmmakers Aaron Sorkin and Steven Spielberg supported Harris' bid for attorney general in 2010, Gene Maddaus reported for Variety. 
Consumer products are a staple among influencers, and often signal the next step in a growing business. But launching a company as an extension of a personal brand can be tricky. United Talent Agency has a division, called UTA Ventures, that works directly with influencer clients like Emma Chamberlain on developing brands. Sam Wick, the head of UTA Ventures, spoke with Business Insider about the division and the trends he's noticed recently in the industry. Subscribe to Business Insider's influencer newsletter: Influencer Dashboard. The 19-year-old YouTube star Emma Chamberlain is known by her 9 million followers as a coffee lover, and some of her fans can recite her exact order.  So last year, when Chamberlain and her agents at United Talent Agency were thinking about the next step of her influencer business, they thought developing a coffee product would make sense. Chamberlain launched two products in late 2019 in collaboration with Bixby Roasting Co.: instant coffee bags and mugs. To facilitate the launch and development of the products, Chamberlain turned to UTA Ventures, the agency's in-house team of VCs. UTA Ventures invests both off its balance sheet and with outside limited partners. It also has an investment banking practice that helps clients and portfolio companies raise capital, as well as sell their companies. For Chamberlain Coffee, the basic idea was to have those first two products be a test run for a wider brand. "The first route of product was limited as a drop," Sam Wick, the head of UTA Ventures, told Business Insider. "It went well as a proof of concept. This allowed us to close a round of funding, which is being used to rebrand and push for a wider range of SKUs/products for the September launch." UTA declined to comment on what products will be included in the September launch. For influencers, owning a company often signals the next step in a growing business. "To build a brand is a different thing than, let's say, building a merch business or building a drop," Wick said. "It's much more nuanced. It's much more complicated than most people think. Brands are really built to last."  Influencers have launched brands in areas from fragrance (The Dolan Twins' Wakeheart brand) to makeup (Jeffree Star's cosmetic line) and clothing (Julia Engel's Gal Meets Glam collection). 'They really need to be passionate about the business that they are going to be entering into' UTA Ventures conducts surveys and focus groups to help make sure a specific product is right for the client to sell and if the client has "brand permission," Wick said.   The concept of brand permission is similar to brand trust. Essentially, it is whether an audience would be willing to accept a brand from a celebrity or influencer. "You can create brand permission by spending the time to communicate with your audience the things that you truly care about," Wick said.  For instance, Chamberlain created brand permission by introducing her passion for coffee to her followers and having that become a large part of her brand and image. "They really need to be passionate about the business that they are going to be entering into," Wick said.  UTA Ventures has built businesses for traditional celeb clients like Jessica Alba, Tia Mowry, and Post Malone with his French rosé Maison No. 9. The company has also helped build businesses for other digital talent besides Chamberlain, like the popular kids YouTuber Blippi (9 million subscribers) on his products which are sold at retailers like Walmart and Target. UTA Ventures said it had closed over 17 licensing deals for Blippi spanning apparel, publishing, toys, and crafts. Overall, UTA Ventures said it had built, advised, and invested in a portfolio of over 40 businesses. Categories like subscription-based services and food are growing in popularity Wick said throughout his four years at UTA, podcasting had seen "dramatic growth," and over the years the traditional talent and digital sectors have grown closer together.  Wick said that recently, the categories that have stood out and grown over the last few months in response to the coronavirus pandemic and stay-at-home orders include subscription media, education tech, wellness, virtual events, and food delivery. "It's pretty hard to find talent who don't like travel and food as a category and I think we're going to see a general acceleration in food and I think the first place we are going to see this in is virtual restaurants," Wick said.  For more on the influencer industry, check out these Business Insider posts:  The top 19 talent managers and agents for TikTok influencers who are helping build the careers of a new generation of digital stars 14 investors and VC firms funding innovative startups built around YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok creators and the influencer industry Inside UTA's deal with TikTok star Charli D'Amelio and how the talent agency plans to expand her influencer business SEE ALSO: 14 investors and VC firms funding innovative startups built around YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok creators and the influencer industry Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: 7 secrets about Washington, DC landmarks you probably didn't know

This story is part of Black Ballad’s takeover of HuffPost UK, a week-long series by Black women on parenting, family, and our post-Covid future. Sitting in her car, with her nine-year-old son Roman in the passenger seat, Sharmadean Reid is refreshingly honest about parenting during a pandemic. “I had a massive breakdown in the beginning, because Roman was going to private school. It had lockdown a week before all of the other schools, because posh people like to travel and there were two cases in the school, even before they announced that schools needed to close,” says the beauty entrepreneur.“I am a Black mum who wants her child to do well and be amazing and I was freaking out that he wasn’t learning anything.”Related... Why Black Ballad Is Taking Over HuffPost UK Many parents felt the same pangs of panic when the government announced school closures in March. Yet, like other families dealing with homeschooling, Reid made the best of a situation that none of us had ever experienced.  “After a couple of weeks, I had to really organise,” she says. ”One of the critical things for us was when I went to my office and got a desk for him. I got loads of stationery and re-organised his bedroom, so it was more like a workspace and then we settled down into a really nice rhythm.”  If you know anything about Sharmadean Reid, you’ll know that this 36-year-old is on a relentless mission to empower women through the beauty industry – and to provide working mums with opportunities to succeed beyond measure. This passion to ensure working mums can fulfil their career ambitions started back in 2009, when she founded her first business, Wah Nails.Not only did Reid achieve her quest of creating the coolest nail shop in London – with stores in Dalston, east London and in Topshop’s flagship branch at Oxford Circus – Wah Nails also built pop-up nail bars for brands including British Airways, Marc Jacobs and Nike. And it was through these innovative ventures that she was able to employ numerous single mums. “There are not many jobs you can do when you are a mum that are flexible but beauty is one of them,” she says – adding that many of the jobs that do have flexibility ”tend to not be as gratifying”.“The thing about working in a salon is that it is really satisfying. You are tapping into your creative brain that you might not get to do when you are running around being mum and there is the social interaction element. I’ve always thought that beauty was a really important part of the future of work and the future of work for women – as it’s paid, flexible, creative and social work.”  She adds: “The way that it happened with Wah, we just endorsed them. A lot of women who were very enterprising were like: ‘I am going to learn how to do nails because I’ve got a kid and I need to pick him up from school when I want.’“It kinda turned out that they choose me. We all know what it is like when your babysitter cancels or your child is ill. I think to employ working mothers you have to be empathetic to their experience and that can be hard if you have never been a caregiver before.” Now, after a decade of revolutionising the beauty industry, Reid has closed all her stores to focus on her current venture, Beautystack, an app that acts as a marketplace for next-generation beauty professionals to sell their services and take bookings directly from clients, all through the power of their imagery.Founding the app in 2017 while still running WAH, Reid knew, again, that she wanted to make flexible working and her staff’s childcare needs a priority. The tem had moved into a much larger office where it could run events. But Reid saw potential in the space beyond another ping-pong table or games room.I thought: wouldn’t it be far more economical to employ a nanny then lose a team member at such a critical juncture of our startup?“My co-founder had just had a baby, one of my founding team members just had a baby. I had Roman and I thought: wouldn’t it be far more economical to employ a nanny to help with the childcare then lose a team member at such a critical juncture of our startup? It wasn’t expensive.“I went to Ikea and got a tent, toys and stuff and hired someone who could be with the kids.“Some of the biggest companies in the world like Nike had a crèche. It means you can drop the kids off at the office and you work knowing that your child is cared for. Part of the stress as a parent is thinking: ‘Is my child being looked after very well?’”While doing her part to help parents in the workforce, the Wolverhampton native strongly believes the government’s approach – or non-existent approach – to supporting new parents is one of the biggest social problems that we face.“This country has targets and mandates for productivity and economic growth without considering for the first three years of a child’s life, there is no financial support for women – therefore eradicating a huge proportion of the population who could be contributing to the economy if they wanted to,” says Reid.“They are removing from the workforce the opportunity for productivity, innovation, research, new entrepreneurs, as a lot of women will eventually give other people jobs.“Without making it economically viable for women to return to work easily, they are taking women out of the workforce for three years and it’s incredibly hard to return to work. It is very, very short-sighted to think tax breaks are the issue – just give full time childcare from age one for anyone who wants it.”Related... It's Getting Worse For Working Parents In The Pandemic – Not Better For her part, Reid admits that parenting during Covid-19 had made her a much more “relaxed” mum. “I would say I’ve gone from micromanaging and feeling very, very guilty to now being: ‘It is what it is – let’s just have some adventures,’” she tells me. But despite her self-assuredness, this confident businesswoman struggled with finding her identity after giving birth to her son.“In the year he was born, I didn’t know what clothes I should be wearing. I was only 26. I also lost my sexual identity. I wasn’t sure the right way to be, as your body changes so much, but unfortunately as women – and this a horrible fact of the socialisation and sexualisation of women – much of your identity is defined by your physicality.“So I was like, if I’ve lost my physical body as I’ve known it, then who am I?”Related... What Happens To Your Sense Of Self In Motherhood? Listen To Our Podcast “In that first year, I was cooking, baking and doing so much mum crafting shit, you won’t believe it. I was turning into Martha Stewart,” she says with a laugh.“What did I do to combat this? I took a full time consultancy role at Nike when Roman was one and that forced me to get my identity back and when I mean identity, I mean I got my work ethnic back.” As our interview continues, it’s clear Reid is juggling work and motherhood right in front of me – driving around London with Roman by her side, picking up packages for Beautystack, while continuing to interact with her son throughout. Looking from the outside in, it’s easy to assume she has this work-life balance thing nailed, but she is quick to reject any praise that suggests she’s a mum who manages everything with ease. I hate when people say you’re superwoman because you have a kid and got a business. Like no, no, I only have my child half of the week.“The biggest challenge is energy management. I’m obviously and clearly more tired when I have my son, not because he requires my energy, but because you are double-thinking. You are thinking for yourself and you are thinking for somebody else.“I hate the idea when people say you’re superwoman because you have a kid, you got a business. Like no, I only have my child half of the week. Don’t look at me and think that what I do is comparable or achievable, because on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, I don’t have anyone to look after apart from myself. Imagine if you had all of that time, what you could achieve. Imagine your clarity of thought?” Reid shares custody of Roman with his father Greg. “I love and think about my son all the time but when it comes to Wednesday to Saturday I am not in mother mode whatsoever. I fully rate people who just have their kids full time – because if I’m honest, I’m not even sure how I would manage.”Key to the co-parenting relationship is routine, she says. “By hook or by crook, Greg always has Roman at Wednesday one o’clock to Saturday one o’clock. We are obviously flexible, but I wouldn’t book a holiday on those days. Think how passive aggressive it would be,” she says. “These are the games that people play and all it is is a bid for power.” She also values keeping things more civil and courteous. “If there is a triangle of a relationship between mother, father and child, you absolutely have to sever that connection between mother and father emotionally and don’t let any positive or negative feelings you have towards your former partner affect the consistency of their relationship between their dad or mum.“The child to parent relationship always stays intact even if the mother and father one doesn’t; the single thing that has made it successful has been consistency – that is what children need.”  View this post on InstagramA post shared by Sharmadean Reid (@sharmadeanreid) on Apr 24, 2020 at 11:38am PDTReid is just as transparent when reflecting on how her own childhood and becoming a mum inspired her to empower other women economically. “When I was younger, we couldn’t really afford anything I wanted. I remember always thinking when I was a kid I’m going to earn money to buy the things I want,” she tells me.“At the time I was separating from Roman’s dad, I couldn’t actually afford to move out for ages. I remember thinking I needed to do a couple of styling jobs to get money for a deposit on my flat. Luckily, I could do that and it was big chunks of money I would be paid. That is not typical.“In the world we live in today, the freedom of choice, while it is very mental – you mentally have to choose the life you want to live – it is accelerated by having an income and being economically independent to choose the type of life that you want.”As we edge nearer to the end of our 45-minute call, I’m curious to find out are the things Reid most enjoys doing with Roman. She laughs again.“What I like to do with him (whether he likes to do it is another story) is to go to the Science Museum.” She turns to Roman and asks him the same question I’ve just asked her. “What do we enjoy doing together the most?” Roman answers: “Going to the park.”“Yes, long walks and I love travelling by ourselves,” she responds. “Staying at new hotels – he loves a hotel. We used to go cinema nearly every Saturday, that was our thing. We watch a movie almost every night, so basically we can be home and just watch a film. Roman adds: “I can only remember a few days where I didn’t watch an entire movie with my mum.”Soon after this, Reid drops Roman off, leaving just the two of us in conversation. With the interview coming to a close, I want to know how she stays motivated to keep building businesses that put women – and by extension, mothers – at the centre? Her answer is quite simple.“I really want to prove the point that it’s good business. I think that people bang on and on about the charitable part, the social impact part, but it’s just obvious that it is good to do, that it’s just good business.”This article was commissioned for HuffPost UK by Black Ballad, the lifestyle platform that tells stories of human experience through the eyes of Black British women and elevates their voices.

TikTok has threatened to sue the Trump administration over Thursday's executive order that bans US citizens and companies from doing business with its Chinese parent company ByteDance. TikTok responded to the order on Friday, saying it was issued "without any due process." The executive order prohibits US individuals and companies from making "any transactions" with TikTok's parent company ByteDance. Another order on Thursday targets Tencent-owned WeChat. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. TikTok has threatened to sue the Trump administration over the president's executive order banning US companies and individuals from doing business with its parent company ByteDance. Trump signed the executive order Thursday, claiming the Chinese firm poses a national security risk. "We are shocked by the recent Executive Order, which was issued without any due process," TikTok said in a statement published Friday. "For nearly a year, we have sought to engage with the US government in good faith to provide a constructive solution to the concerns that have been expressed. What we encountered instead was that the Administration paid no attention to facts, dictated terms of an agreement without going through standard legal processes, and tried to insert itself into negotiations between private businesses," it added. TikTok suggested that the executive order was illegal and that it may challenge the diktat in court. The company said: "We will pursue all remedies available to us in order to ensure that the rule of law is not discarded and that our company and our users are treated fairly – if not by the Administration, then by the US courts." This week reports emerged that the Trump administration was forcing TikTok to sell off its US business or face a ban. Microsoft has publicly announced its pursuing acquisition talks for TikTok's US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand business. TikTok accused the Trump administration of flouting the law by ignoring due process. "This Executive Order risks undermining global businesses' trust in the United States' commitment to the rule of law, which has served as a magnet for investment and spurred decades of American economic growth," it says. Here's TikTok's response to the order: "TikTok is a community full of creativity and passion, a home that brings joy to families and meaningful careers to creators. And we are building this platform for the long term. TikTok will be here for many years to come. "We are shocked by the recent Executive Order, which was issued without any due process. For nearly a year, we have sought to engage with the US government in good faith to provide a constructive solution to the concerns that have been expressed. What we encountered instead was that the Administration paid no attention to facts, dictated terms of an agreement without going through standard legal processes, and tried to insert itself into negotiations between private businesses. "We made clear our intentions to work with the appropriate officials to devise a solution to benefit our users, creators, partners, employees, and the broader community in the United States. There has been, and continues to be, no due process or adherence to the law. The text of the decision makes it plain that there has been a reliance on unnamed "reports" with no citations, fears that the app "may be" used for misinformation campaigns with no substantiation of such fears, and concerns about the collection of data that is industry standard for thousands of mobile apps around the world. We have made clear that TikTok has never shared user data with the Chinese government, nor censored content at its request. In fact, we make our moderation guidelines and algorithm source code available in our Transparency Center, which is a level of accountability no peer company has committed to. We even expressed our willingness to pursue a full sale of the US business to an American company. "This Executive Order risks undermining global businesses' trust in the United States' commitment to the rule of law, which has served as a magnet for investment and spurred decades of American economic growth. And it sets a dangerous precedent for the concept of free expression and open markets. We will pursue all remedies available to us in order to ensure that the rule of law is not discarded and that our company and our users are treated fairly – if not by the Administration, then by the US courts. "We want the 100 million Americans who love our platform because it is your home for expression, entertainment, and connection to know: TikTok has never, and will never, waver in our commitment to you. We prioritize your safety, security, and the trust of our community – always. As TikTok users, creators, partners, and family, you have the right to express your opinions to your elected representatives, including the White House. You have the right to be heard."Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: July 15 is Tax Day — here's what it's like to do your own taxes for the very first time
Starz has added streaming subscribers and reduced cancellations, even as legacy-media giants like WarnerMedia and Peacock launch rival offerings.  Two top Starz execs told Business Insider that comarketing with platforms including Amazon Prime Video and Hulu has been key to that growth. "We're going to market with them in a lot of instances to try to grab subscribers together," Alison Hoffman, Starz' president of domestic networks, told Business Insider. The premium-TV service, which hired a new content chief in May, is also ordering more seasons of shows like "P-Valley" and a wide-range of new dramas geared toward its core audience of women to keep the moment going. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Premium-TV network Starz is facing more competition in the streaming space from new entrants like HBO Max, Peacock, and Apple TV Plus. But its streaming audience has continued to grow, reaching in March new heights of 6.8 million subscriber in the US and 10.6 million globally, including its international version StarzPlay. Subscription-analytics firm Antenna also found that, while Starz's US rate of conversion from free trials to subscriptions was lower than some other major streaming services, people who paid to subscribe were more likely stick with Starz than its direct competitors. Starz had the lowest pace of cancellations, or churn, among premium-TV rivals including HBO and Showtime from April to June, according to the July report. Starz also told Business Insider that cancellations were down year-over-year in recent months, and users were watching for longer. Part of Starz's growth is due to the pandemic, which has people spending more time at home and streaming video. But two top Starz execs also told Business Insider that the company has been partnering with new streaming entrants to nab more subscribers. Those players are willing to work with Starz because it's so far resisted the trend of expanding into a general-audience streaming service, and sells itself alongside those other platforms. "We really are sticking to that premium model, which also allows us to partner with a lot of these entrants," Alison Hoffman, Starz' president of domestic networks, told Business Insider. "We're going to market with them in a lot of instances to try to grab subscribers together." Hoffman, who was Starz's marketing chief before being promoted to her current role in April, said Starz is comarketing its service with well-heeled streamers like Hulu, Apple TV Plus, and Amazon Prime Video.  Those streamers, incidentally, have been among the heaviest advertisers in the streaming-TV category since the pandemic hit, as Business Insider has reported. Each aired TV ads worth north of $100 million during the second quarter, according to data from iSpot.TV. Hulu also promoted Starz as an add-on service in recent digital-ad campaign, as Business Insider reported based on data from Pathmatics. And, in November, as Disney was blocking rival Netflix from advertising on many of its TV networks, it was promoting Starz on Disney Plus and ESPN Plus, as The Verge first reported. C0marketing with other channels served Starz well in the pay-TV ecosystem, when it would sell in bundles with other premium-TV networks HBO or Showtime, on top of basic cable. Starz simply translated it to the streaming world.  "The more things change, the more they stay the same," Hoffman said. "We're really sticking to our knitting." Starz is doubling down on its core strategy when it comes to programming, as well. In May, the company brought on former CBS exec Christina Davis as its head of original programming. She is helping expand Starz's slate of dramas geared toward audiences it says have been traditionally underserved by premium TV, like women, Black, Latinx, and LGBTQ viewers. The company solidified that approach after its historical drama "The White Queen" hit in 2013, and set the stage for dramas like "Outlander" that came after. "We saw this influx of women viewers and they were passionate and they were buzzing on social media," Hoffman said. "We said, 'Nobody is doing this and there's such passion and there's such attachment and evangelism, because people aren't finding these voices on premium.'" Starz is sharpening that focus now to stand out amid the noise in streaming.  Davis said she's looking for stories that go deeper into character than much of what she was able to shepherd in in the broadcast world. "I've always been jealous of the outlets that get to actually tell these brilliant stories about brilliant characters that are female and diverse," Davis said. "The stuff that I'm most proud of, I could see on Starz, like 'The Good Wife,' and shows like that, that really get to dig deeper into character exploration and tell a very distinct, potentially provocative story." Davis is meeting, virtually, with a wide range of writers from the traditional-TV sphere, as well as creators outside of that bubble, given that first-time showrunners like Katori Hall have created huge hits for the network.  Starz recently ordered a second season of Hall's "P-Valley," a drama about the strip-club scene in Mississippi that made waves after it launched in July. It also renewed the crime drama "Hightown" and set a September premiere date for its "Power" spinoff, "Power Book II: Ghost." She's also learning to give those creators space to create. "What I'm noticing is that we're able to let the creators tell these stories," Davis said. "Instead of noting them to death, just let them tell their story and let the passion come out." Starz released 14 original series in the last year, the company said. It currently has about 20 shows in development, compared with the 50 to 60 series Davis said she would typically develop during an average broadcast season, 10 of which would make it to pilot and roughly four of which would get series orders. Davis is also starting to think more globally about programming, as Starz has expanded to 50 countries through its international streaming service, StarzPlay. Starz announced this week its first set of international originals, including local-language coproductions coming out of Spain and Mexico. "It does feel like audiences around the world are really hungry for great drama and stories well told, with complex narratives," Hoffman said.Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: 7 secrets about Washington, DC landmarks you probably didn't know

President Donald Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One on Friday night that he is banning the Chinese-owned social media platform TikTok from the US. "As far as TikTok is concerned we're banning them from the United States," Trump told reporters on Friday, according to a pool report from the Los Angeles Times' David Cloud. Trump asserted he had the "authority" to do so "with an executive order or that," according to Cloud's pool report. However, it's unclear whether Trump can ban the app completely. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. President Donald Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One on Friday that he is banning the Chinese-owned social media platform TikTok from the US using his "presidential authority." "As far as TikTok is concerned we're banning them from the United States," Trump told reporters on Friday, according to a pool report from the Los Angeles Times' David Cloud. Trump told reporters he planned to take action "as soon as Saturday." According to the pool report, Trump asserted he has the "authority" to ban TikTok "with an executive order or that." However, it's unclear what authority he has to ban the app completely in the US. Representatives from the White House did not respond to Business Insider's request for comment. The Trump administration has publicly been threatening to ban TikTok since early July, citing concerns about the app's ties to China and the foreign government's access to user data and content moderationthrough its parent company, ByteDance. TikTok has repeatedly insisted it would never provide any data if the Chinese government asked. Trump's quip to reporters on Friday night comes hours after reports surfaced Trump was planning to issue an executive order instructing TikTok's parent company to "divest" from the viral app's operations in the US. According to a 1988 law, Trump has the authority to block foreign business deals pertaining to US companies if he deems it a national security threat. Trump has twice previously used this authority to block deals in which tech corporations from China and Singapore were poised to take over US-based companies. Microsoft quickly emerged as a potential buyer of TikTok's US operations. The company is reportedly in "advanced talks" of the sale, which "could eliminate potential legal challenges — and public backlash — that could have occurred if the wildly popular app was forced off millions of American smartphones," The Wall Street Journal reported. It's unclear how TikTok or ByteDance would respond to either of the president's directives, but issuing an executive order would represent an escalation in the Trump administration's attacks on TikTok and other Chinese tech companies. In an earlier statement to Business Insider, a TikTok representative said that the company did not comment "on rumors or speculation" and that it was "confident in the long-term success of TikTok." "Hundreds of millions of people come to TikTok for entertainment and connection, including our community of creators and artists who are building livelihoods from the platform," TikTok said in its statement. "We're motivated by their passion and creativity, and committed to protecting their privacy and safety as we continue working to bring joy to families and meaningful careers to those who create on our platform." TikTok came to the US in 2018, and has since found an energetic and growing base of as many as 80 million users. The app, which has more than 2.3 billion downloads worldwide, was most recently valued at a whopping $30 billion to $50 billion. TikTok's China ties have attracted more attention in recent months as the president and administration officials have said they're weighing a ban on the app. Trump has said a ban would be a way to punish China over its role in the coronavirus pandemic, while Secretary of State Mike Pompeo cited national-security concerns. The resulting uncertainty in TikTok's future has reportedly led ByteDance executives and investors to explore alternatives to avoid a US ban. Earlier this month, a group of ByteDance's US investors, including Sequoia Capital and General Atlantic, were looking into buying a majority stake in TikTok, according to The Information. But The Information reported Friday that those talks had failed, because of concerns that such a takeover "wouldn't pass muster with the Trump administration."Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: The rise and fall of Donald Trump's $365 million airline

Slack is offering an online course in how to become an administrator for people who manage their organization's usage of the workplace chat app.  The course is part of Slack's broader goal of creating an online training academy to teach skills for those managing and administering the tool or developing apps for it, while also building a community of users, said Christina Kosmowski, Slack's VP of customer success. Typically, Fortune 500 companies, like Verizon, IBM, and Oracle, are the ones hiring people dedicated to managing Slack usage because the sheer size of the organization requires it. As much as Slack expects to see a boom in demand for administrators, the job market doesn't seem to have caught up quite yet. However, as the company grows there will likely be more Slack-specific roles that start to pop up. The new course costs $300, but Slack is also offering a scholarship to those who can't afford it.  Click here to read more BI Prime stories.  Slack continues to sign on larger customers, even as it becomes a critical tool to keep businesses running amid the pandemic. That growth has created a new job title — Slack administrator — as Fortune 500 companies like Verizon, IBM, and Oracle now require dedicated manpower to managing their use of the work chat app.  Now, Slack, the company, is ramping up its existing efforts to train those administrators. Slack started offering in-person administrator training late last year; the sudden boom in interest thanks to the remote work boom is seeing the introduction of an online course to reach even more people, with plans for more to come.  The ultimate goal is to build an online academy to help administrators and developers alike make the most of Slack, said Christina Kosmowski, VP of customer success. "We've got this whole new category, we've got a whole bunch of Slack administrators who are really supporting and championing within their organizations, how they utilize Slack," Kosmowski told Business Insider. "And so they've been wanting and desperate for this deeper set of knowledge and really to be recognized for that knowledge that they have."  When the pandemic started Slack saw huge customer growth, signing on 12,000 new paid customers in the first quarter of this year. It also signed on more large customers, including Amazon and Verizon, last quarter. Those are typically customers using the Enterprise Grid version of the product, geared towards large organizations. The size alone often means there needs to be someone managing it all, Kosmowski said. The online course costs $300, though Slack is offering a handful of scholarships right now to those who can't afford the fee. At the end of the course, participants receive a Slack certified administrator badge, which they can list on their resume or on LinkedIn. The model is similar to what Salesforce has created with Trailhead, its successful online learning platform that's helped many job-seekers start a career in administering the tool. It's unclear what the typical salary range for a Slack admin is, but Kosmowski said she would expect the pay to be similar to general IT or Salesforce administrator roles, which in San Francisco can command a salary of around $150,000, according to data from careers site Glassdoor.  Who is hiring Slack administrators? The job titles vary. IBM employees in the role are called Slack Admins. Apple has a job opening for a Slack Product Integrations Manager. Life insurance company Northwestern Mutual is hiring a Slack engineer. Consulting firm Latitude is hiring a Slack Enterprise Service Manager.  While all the job titles are a bit different, all of them want people who can set information sharing and privacy preferences for Slack users, build integrations between Slack and other productivity apps the company uses, and generally make sure people are using the product to the fullest extent, which is what the course teaches.  As much as Slack expects to see a boom in demand for administrators, the job market doesn't seem to have caught up quite yet. As of July 6th, Glassdoor listed 11 open roles with the word "Slack" in the job title — which doesn't seem like much, but is still double the number of listings as recently as January. As the company grows, however, you can expect to see more Slack-specific roles start to pop up. "While demand for roles specifically oriented around Slack administration is still relatively low, it's likely we'll see new opportunities be created as more employers continue to adopt new technologies like Slack in the current state of remote work," said Glassdoor analyst Amanda Stansell.  Kosmowski similarly believes that as Slack usage ticks up in an enterprise, so too will the demand. "It's something that customers know that they need because they picked this very transformational tool that they're using across their entire company," Kosmowski said.  Creating a Slack ecosystem The next step is to build the kind of ecosystem around Slack that's already enjoyed by the likes of larger rivals like Salesforce or Dropbox.  In addition to offering an online Slack admin course, it's going to be adding courses for developers who want to build apps for Slack, and a course for experience designers who want to create custom workflows in the app. Slack sees both as burgeoning future job titles.  Ultimately, Kosmowski said, it's all because there's already a need for this kind of training in the market, and the company just wants to build a community that can become the ecosystem it's looking for. "There's a group of people that are really coming out of that and feeling that passion and they want to take that expertise to the next level," she said. "This is really just the beginning steps for certainly working with our customers and partners to find out what methods work best for them in terms of learning style."
