Businesses are booming. In fact, the SBA reports that there are more than 400,000 businesses created every year. But with digital taking over, how does that affect more traditional businesses like music labels and media companies?

In this session, UPROXX and Rawkus Records founder Jarret Myer along with legendary rapper and budding label owner Talib Kweli will discuss what it means to start a business -- whether a label or a creative media company in the digital age. The session will cover mission, product, business and more. They will also look at what you should be asking yourself and how you should be preparing. Because the launch is just the beginning.
