CMM-I was able to help us successfully navigate the difficult world of Chinese media and communicate our unique message about providing entertainment and educational material that gives children the tools to learn in a way that enabled us to productively find a partner. Without CMM-I’s work, it’s doubtful that we would have been able to launch our China business as effectively as we did.
