Fabienne Fourquet: CEO, 2bTube
Fabienne Fourquet (France, 1977) started her career in New York working at A+E Networks, a subsidiary of Hearst Corporation and Disney. She launched A+E’s International Digital Content Distribution Business. While at A+E she also worked at their Singapore and London offices.
She moved back to Paris in 2010 to work at Canal+ where she last held the position of Digital Content Director, responsible for the strategy and management of all ad-supported digital platforms: websites, social networks and content applications. She also spearheaded the launch of Canal+ on YouTube with the creation of 20 channels dedicated to Canal+ brands and programming strands, as well as Canal+ investments in Maker Studios and StudioBagel, and the development of its own MCN: Talent Factory.
In 2014 she founded 2btube with Bastian Manintveld. 2btube is a talent representation agency with more than 650 audiovisual creators worldwide. Its audience, exceeds 190 million subscribers and 1.5 billion views per month on YouTube.

Anarosa De Eizaguirre Butler is, to quote female comic Iliza Shlesinger, ‘An Elder Millennial’. As a child of the 80’s she remembers ghetto blasters, twin deck cassette recording , when CD’S were the future, (apart from when they skipped )and the ill fated mini disk player. Academically she received her B:A from Liverpool University and her Masters from University College Dublin.
How she fits within the framework of the Future Music Forum is her passion for music and her skills within broadcasting. In Barcelona she’s been part of the Barcelonacityfm team as a radio DJ for nearly two years. As an actor she’s been thrust into the world of social media and the need to have an online presence. Slowly but surely building up her brand as SpanishIrish chick whilst studying the phenomenon of Youtube and the ‘Youtuber’ generation. Finding one’s place within this ever expanding field , which from an outsider’s perspective is only for the kids, her aim is to investigate this idea and find a link towards this field for those of us who may be deemed a little older . You know , that group of people who once used to write letters.
She brings her skills as a professional performer , music enthusiast and online admiration to this year’s 2019 Future Music Forum.
