OUR STORY

FORTYFY is a combination of more than 20 years experience in digital distribution through Daredo and Unit Media.

  • 2004

    FORMATION DAREDO

    Daredo was founded in 2004 in Mannheim, Germany and was one of the first distributors in the music business. They started with the business units Daredo Music and Daredo Publishing. Through their years of experience and pioneer mentality, they have taken further steps towards a digital distribution in addition to the classic distribution channels.
  • 2006

    FORMATION UNIT MEDIA

    Unit Media was founded by Ralf Henninger in 2006 in Hamburg, Germany. It started as a label and after a short period of time formed into a label group consisting of 25 labels. From that experience Unit Media knew what label-work means. Finally they evolved into a digital distribution company with over 1000 labels.
  • 2010 - 2014

    EXPANSION DAREDO

    In February 2010, Daredo took over the technical service provider deeep.net. Four years later in 2014, Daredo launched physical and digital film distribution, called daredoTV.
  • 2016

    EXPANSION UNIT MEDIA

    Since 2016 Unit Media is an officially certified YouTube partner and Multi-Channel Network. The company expanded locations to several cities like Berlin, Sarajevo, Mexiko City and Nashville.

  • 2017 - 2020

    FOCUS DAREDO

    Since 2017 Daredo has focused solely on digital and physical distribution of music, video and films. At the beginning of 2020, the brand was replaced by YOMU (Music Distribution), YOVI (Video Distribution) and daredo TV (Film Distribution) under the main company Daredo.

  • 2021

    FORTYFY

    In 2021 Daredo merged with the digital media distribution company Unit Media. Now called FORTYFY, we combine 20 years of experience in film, video and music distribution as well as label work, radio and live. Through this we are very well connected all over the world and keep close relationships with our partners. Meanwhile we distribute over 2000 labels with 550.000 tracks to more than 300 DSPs. We are represented in Mannheim, Hamburg, Berlin, Sarajevo, Mexico City, Nashville USA, and plan to expand in many more countries to build up core offices and continue building closer relationships.
