Forever has completed its third significant investment by acquiring Builders Club

Queen’s Park Equity (“QPE”) is delighted to announce that Forever has completed its third significant investment by acquiring Builders Club, an international creative studio producing high-end visual content. This partnership marks the next step for Forever which was created following FutureDeluxe’s acquisition of Tendril in January 2023.

Founded in 2015 by Jonas Hegi and Julien Simshauser, Builders Club is a hybrid studio reimagining the traditional production company, creative agency and design studio to provide a forward-thinking storytelling experience that supports its clients’ creative goals.

Builders Club specialises in producing visual media using a range of methods including CGI, animation and live-action with an in-house filmmaking division ZUKUNFT. The studio is renowned for its outstanding work and has collaborated with iconic brands from Chanel and Mercedes-Benz to Apple and Nike.

Forever’s approach to collaboration aims to expand its studios’ reach through access to R&D, technology and talent without diluting their creative identities. This philosophy ensures that the collective is able to offer a bespoke service that meets the unique aims of its clients with unique creative solutions.

Julien Simshauer, Co-Founder and Director at Builders Club commented, “Builders Club has always been about crafting great work alongside an amazing team. Joining Forever amplifies our journey—building on our strengths, evolving our approach. It’s the natural next chapter.”

Jonas Hegi, Co-Founder and Director at Builders Club added, “Working within Forever means we can exchange ideas, resources and knowledge, paving the way for future opportunities. We are dedicated to creativity and innovation while embracing new challenges, true to where we come from as we move forward together.”

James Callahan, Forever CEO said, “Having admired the work from Builders Club for many years now it’s great to have them as part of the Forever team. Each studio brings a uniqueness and Builders Club have a totally individual style and are true disruptors within the industry.”

Jose Rodriguez, co-Managing Partner of QPE shared, “We are delighted to support Forever in creating the leading group of motion design tech companies. Forever works with the best brands in the world, helping them adopt new ideas and emerging technologies with their bleeding-edge creative technical solutions. With studios in London, Toronto, LA, New York, São Paulo, and Sydney, the group can leverage investment in innovation, strategy, and R&D to support clients in harnessing new creative tools in this fast-paced, changing environment.”

Through its acquisition of Builders Club, Forever has demonstrated the collective’s commitment to harnessing future-focused technology to inform design and storytelling. This partnership further exemplifies QPE’s dedication to supporting and empowering entrepreneur-led businesses within the Education, Health & Pharma and Tech-enabled business services sectors.
