Within Seattle's Shadows
The most recent addition to the Corporate Court, Horizon (also known as the Horizon Group) is a AAA megacorporation that focuses on public relations, media, and entertainment. Its main headquarters is in Los Angeles. While Horizon is best known for its presence in all aspects of advertising, marketing, and entertainment, it also has subsidiaries in consumer goods and services, real estate and development, and pharmaceuticals. Subsidiaries include New Line, Polyaural, and Hisato-Turner. It is said that Horizon’s corporate culture is much less hierarchical than the other megacorporations, focusing more on team-building and cross-tier “workgroups”, which makes sense given its advertising and PR roots. Horizon also is reportedly meta- and Awakened-friendly,1 with a particular interest in Technomancers (as both promoters and employers). Horizon is also the first (and as of 2071, the only) corporation to offer citizenship to AIs. While Horizon possesses a more dynamic corporate culture than most, it is still quite successful and a force to be reckoned with in the Sixth World.
