About the Chase ecosystem

Formerly known as REC, we’ve been active in building communities and training youngsters in radio and media for over a decade. What started in 2007 as accessible workshops for all kinds of radio hosts, podcasters, storytellers of all kind, turned into our digital and social storytelling postgraduate courses over the years.

When we started our own community Chase back in 2012, we saw slow but steady growth, resulting in starting our own social storytelling agency Chase Creative in 2017. Since we reach a valuable audience with the Chase brand, it made the most sense to combine all of our marketing and branding efforts into one brand, that’s why REC. turned into Chase Academy.

Our ultimate goal is to kickstart cultural and social change, by giving a voice and media platform to youngsters, by training them to be great online storytellers and by giving them opportunities to create a professional career for themselves. The profits we make in our Agency are reinvested into the Chase community and Chase Academy.


Chase is our Community with hundreds of Social Media Storytellers working for a digital-first audience. We create engaging stories that kickstart cultural and social change. The community creates content for the Chase channels or the channels of the individual creatives on the themes of urban music, society, and lifestyle, reaching millions of Millenial and Gen Z audiences every year.
