Royalties, Data & Starting Up a Music Investment Fund


This year The Music Fund launches, using data science to forge a new market allowing investors to support musicians in the long tail. We'll discuss what we've learned about starting an artist-friendly business, launching an investment fund, pricing royalties using data, and meeting the needs of the developing musician in an artist-first, scalable way. Topics will include findings from the data, legal and operational issues with collecting and dividing royalties, and our experience as part of the Techstars Music startup accelerator.
