Bumble IPO, Nasdaq Remote Opening Bell
In spring of 2021, Centerstage matched with Nasdaq and Bumble at the Austin-based company’s “Beehive” headquarters for its IPO and Opening Bell broadcast. Bumble’s IPO marked a huge step for the dating-app developer and a historic day for Wall Street as Bumble CEO, Whitney Wolf Herd, became the youngest female CEO ever to take a company public. As a valued partner of Nasdaq for remote opening and closing bells, Centerstage travels internationally to connect emerging technologies and established corporations with Wall Street and world viewers. Partnering with Bumble and Nasdaq’s executives, Centerstage was able to execute another flawless opening bell. Providing the production, broadcast technologies, and uplink support, Centerstage turned Bumble’s “Beehive” headquarters into a live remote-broadcast location. Buzz-worthy events like Bumble's IPO require fully redundant, fail-safe production systems to ensure flawless execution every time.
Centerstage has produced live remote broadcasts for Nasdaq on four continents, and continues to work with them to develop more efficient and value-driven broadcast solutions.
