Karmaloop, the popular streetwear brand has been investing in online video since they launched Karmaloop TV back in 2008. Karmaloop was founded by entrepreneur Greg Selkoe who launched the company in 2000 almost failing several times before the brand took off and became a fashion staple. Selkoe and his company recently launched a brand new KarmaloopTV (KTV), which "chronicles and celebrates the progressive cut and paste youth movement known as 'Verge' culture (the multi-racial, global and tech savvy alpha-consumers made up from the first generation to grow up with the internet)."

Harnevo's mission - to define and create a new kind of primetime for online video with premium content that will start driving advertisers away from the TV.
