MUSIC FOR INVESTORS
Ever wanted to own your own band? Your own label? Or just have a say in which direction a music act should head? British crowd-sourcing site, My Major Label, cuts out the middle-men and offers users the opportunity to "invest" in the success of unsigned music acts. The platform works by connecting investors to a pool of selected acts. Investors can then fund those acts by purchasing shares. Once an act is completely funded, Pias UK takes on the responsibility of distribution and investors reap in a percentage of the revenues. Think Motown, meets Facebook, meets Wall Street!
