Music Tech MeetUp: Round 5

***UPDATE PLEASE EMAIL [masked] if the RSVP is closed***

Our Music Tech Event (Round Five) Is Here! And this time it's all about starting, managing, and making your Music Tech company (or project) profitable. 

The Music Technology Group Presents:

Startup Lessons from Music Tech Entrepreneurs and Venture Capitalists.

We have partnered with leading global venture capital seed fund and startup accelerator 500 Startups to bring you an entrepreneurial-focused event. Our agenda looks great (see below), with excellent presenters from 500 Startups and music startup DownToJam.

As usual, pizza, snacks, drinks, and beer will be served--all free of charge (hence the need to RSVP to this event).

About our presenters, speakers, and the event agenda: 

Troy Fullerton - Co-Founder and CEO, DownToJam, Inc.

Talk: "Backstage Pass: The Story of Tech Startup"

It’s 2016. You’re a musician seeking other musicians to start a new project, to fill a spot in your band, or simply to jam for fun. What do you do? Troy Fullerton, Co-Founder and CEO of Toronto-based startup, believes the best option for musicians today is his company's free social network. In this presentation, he'll take you back to the beginning and walk you through the successes and failures that helped his startup reinvent the way musicians connect. 

Selcuk Atli - Venture Partner, 500 Startups

Talk: "Opportunities in Music Technology: Distribution, Monetization and Creation."

Selcuk Atli is a Venture Partner at 500 Startups by day and a singer song writer by night. In this presentation he will give a brief background on the similarities of his startup and musical journeys, and provide an investor's perspective into three distinct opportunities for startups in music technology: Distribution, Monetization and Creation.
