I’ve been wanting to go to SF MusicTech Summit ever since I first heard about it. Brian Zisk, Todd Tate and the team SF MusicTech do a great job of bringing together visionaries in the music/technology space, along with the best and brightest developers, entrepreneurs, investors, service providers, journalists, musicians and organizations who work with them at the convergence of culture and commerce. We meet to discuss the evolving music/business/technology ecosystem in a proactive, conducive to dealmaking environment.
Panel highlights for me were hearing Ted Cohen from TAG Strategic talk about strategic marketing for music related brands and attending talks on Social Media and the Future of Digital. I also had the chance to meet some great people at the Summit including artist Stefan Aronsen, Christen McFarland from The Recording Academy, Kelli Richards from All Access Group , In Ticketing’s Eric Weisz, and Karen T. van Leith and Michael Good from MakeMusic.
Fellow Brit and natural born enthusiast for life Hermione Way and I had an interesting discussion about the importance of trust in social media and marketing in general. SF Music Tech founder Brian Zisk was very kind in saying some nice words about what we are doing at ArtistWorks and allowing me to speak at the Pitch Session in front of a packed room of fellow entrepreneurs, technologists and venture capitalists.
Anyway check out the SF MusicTech site to find out more information and get involved in their next event later this year.
