Djooky, a music startup, is debuting the Djooky Music Investment Summit in a two-day virtual event starting tomorrow (June 17-18). In this partnership with communications agency CFC Big Ideas, the event is expected to connect more than one thousand participants from all over the world.
The virtual summit, the first-ever event of such scale, is dedicated to the pressing issues faced by investment and financial sector in the music industry — involving representatives of global labels, music distribution companies, streaming platforms, law firms, and investment funds, as well as discussions with leading music entrepreneurs and independent artists.
Confirmed speakers are representatives of some of the biggest names in the music industry — CD Baby, SoundCloud, Merlin, Pandora, Round Hill Music, Deezer, Bandcamp, AEG Presents, Beatport, Droplabs, and many others.
According to Djooky’s latest release, the first panel on the program titled “Music Investment in the Covid-19 Era: The Big Comeback” has been scheduled, representing the importance of the emerging music business market and its opportunities in the near future. With the rest of the agenda focused mainly on the key ways of attracting investment worldwide: from prospective opportunities for DIY-creators, intellectual property as a source of revenue, NFTs, to new technology and data management tools, for both artists and investors.
