Chief Digital Officer of WMG Ole Obermann says the new fund will be used to foster diversity and innovation:
“WMG Boost is all about nurturing the diversity of ideas within the music ecosystem, especially at this meeting point between music and tech. This fund enables us to support thoughtful entrepreneurs, learn more about emerging business models, and invest in the creation of more opportunities for artists.”
WMG Boost is currently looking for start-up applicants who are seeking seed funding for innovative projects. The project will need to be between pre-revenue and Series A stages to be considered for investment. WMG Boost will provide applicants with industry expertise and investment up to $1 million.
