About us

We are creating a gig economy for social commerce that connects everyday creators with small businesses looking for brand-suitable content and results, not huge follower counts. We’re empowering creators with high-paying work opportunities suited to their skills. 

What We Do

Because brands need an all-in-one platform where they can leverage social audiences to drive sales without paying a fortune. And because creators need a destination where they can meet brands, smoothly create content, and earn a living without first going viral on TikTok.

Our Team


Mya Papolu

Founder & CEO

Mya Papolu founded Brandbass to empower small businesses to grow online with the help of their most passionate customers and to help avid shoppers create content that generates results for the brands they love.

Mya is a shopping addict herself, and she knows that marketing copy and text reviews pale in comparison to the selling power of a customer sharing a video of their experience with a product. She created Brandbass so that small businesses can capitalize on content and so that salespeople who love brands can earn a living selling on brands’ behalf.

Mya graduated with a BS in engineering from Carnegie Mellon and an MBA from NYU Stern. She consulted with Deloitte, worked as an in-house analyst at Chanel, and managed products at high-growth startups. Mya has seen first-hand the waste and fraud involved in the influencer economy and founded Brandbass to power a new gig economy for digital sales where everyday people come together with small businesses to help each other grow.
