[Via Indie On The Move] 5 Startups For Touring From SF MusicTech Summit That Every Indie Artist Should Know
I recently profiled 5 startups that attended the SF MusicTech Summit in a piece that I wrote for Indie on the Move. Read the full article here.
While at the SF MusicTech Summit covering for Hypebot, I noticed a cool iPhone shaped flyer dropped on a promotional table in the corridor between the restroom and the main gathering room. On one side was a screenshot of an unknown app that displayed Daft Punk concert information and on the other side was the logo, features list, and website. Two weeks later, I finally decided to dig the flyer out of my grab bag and visit their website, www.wego.io (which takes you to iTunes App Store). A quick browse of their app page revealed something magical: this might be THE app for any single person who loves music [insert most young adults].
[Via Hypebot] I Saw Great Startups @SFMusicTech, But They Have A Lot To Learn About The Music Business
I had the pleasure of attending this year’s SF Music Tech Summit and met several smart, creative, and big-thinking founders of a wide variety of music tech startups. Everyone I met with seemed excited and energetic about what their teams are working on and fully committed to making some noise at the summit and beyond.
I set down with about a dozen founders to gain insight into what they’re gearing up to present to the world (or at least the music industry) and what, if any, trends I could uncover. What I learned about their products/services was interesting, cool, and amazing even; but there was a more important theme that manifested at the summit that every music tech startup founder should know. Read about it on Hypebot.
Funk Volume, the home of talented independent artist Dizzy Wright (who was discovered through a talent search tour that I created and produced for Reebok), has announced the creation of a virtual hip hop conference.
