Recording: Featured Session: How Music, Entrepreneurship, & Independence Intersect, Mar 15, 2023

How can artists build careers off their music, own their intellectual property, and transcend into new ventures to build a multi-faceted company? Just ask Blxst – Billboard R&B / Hip-Hop Rookie of the Year and multi platinum artist, producer, and entrepreneur who is speaking this into existence through EVGLE, the company he co-founded alongside his manager Victor Burnett and lawyer Karl Fowlkes. The company, now with more than 12 employees, brings all verticals in-house spanning records, publishing, media, fashion and ventures. Hear from Blxst, Vic and Karl on how to take the necessary steps to build a successful entertainment company that transcends cultural boundaries.
