Why Hip-Hop?

Hip-Hop is the most important, influential and potentially largest user-base for many music tech companies. Hip-Hop artists are early adopters and often the most active and engaged community on most social and music technology platforms. 

Why Atlanta?

Atlanta has the highest per capita user base on nearly all social media platforms.

Atlanta is the capital of hip-hop and has become a hotbed for creativity in music and film. Atlanta sets the trends for music. (see study here)

Atlanta is already a tech hub for finance and cyber security and has the foundation to become ground zero for music tech.

Atlanta also have the busiest airport in the world, affordable living, great weather and we're cool as shit. Still not convinced, check out...

Why Music Tech?

Technology is inseparable from music. New music technology impacts how artists share, create, market and monetize music and videos. Technology has the ability to empower artists and become a successful entrepreneur.
