The Imerjn brand is mostly focused on the 18-35 year old demographic and we will more specifically serve a sub segment of users that are in creative fields and / or value individual expression as opposed to being corporate drones - no offense intended to corporate drones. We will serve our market by building a suite of apps over time that will be dedicated to this target market along with providing a more individualized and less conformist customer experience."
