Music Tech Startup Founders To Discuss Working With Independent Artists At Upcoming Indie Entertainment Summit
The Indie Entertainment Summit is a 4-day conference taking place August 5th – 8th in Los Angeles where independent artists, music industry professionals, managers, and music fans convene to network, experience music from up-and-coming artists, and attend workshops, panels, and music showcases.
This year music business consultant and music tech startup pundit, Dae Bogan, has developed a panel to address the benefits, issues, and opportunities of music tech founders working directly with independent artists. He has invited guest panelists from early and growth stage music tech startups including Ben Brannen (President & Co-Founder of atVenu), Roslynn Cobarrubias (Co-founder & CMO of mydiveo), and Alejandro Carrasco (Co-Founder of Dream Tuner).
