Farah Allen is the founder of The LABZ, a cloud-based blockchain music creation and real-time collaboration platform. The LABZ makes it easy to protect artists’ music by collecting song data to facilitate electronic exchanges of contracts and digital copyrights. For Farah, the first spark came when her husband, who is in the music industry, was having issues with artists not knowing anything about business. They weren’t protecting their music and were leaving money on the table as well as being sued. Empathetic understanding of the pain point, combined with Farah’s problem-solving nature and IT background helped her create a solution that led her to be accepted into Comcast Universal’s, “The Farm” Accelerator program.
