Music Dealers

After spending years supporting Fortune 100 companies in finding the perfect music for ad campaigns, at age 25, Sheinkop co-created Music Dealers - a global music technology solution that bridges the gap between bands and brands, enabling brands to create meaningful and authentic touch points with their target audiences and opening up a new route for emerging artists to gain the exposure, funding and distribution necessary to take their careers to the next level.

In 2011, under Sheinkop’s leadership, Music Dealers cemented a groundbreaking partnership with Coca-Cola, securing Music Dealers’ position as the organization's global music partner and earning Coca-Cola a minority stake in the company. That same year, Sheinkop was recognized in Billboard's "30 Under 30" rising young executives who are driving the music industry forward.
