New investors and Agency Studios
Hello everyone! We know it’s been a while since our last update, but now is as good as time as ever! We have lots of incredible things going on with Audiodraft and are super excited to fill you in!
We are very happy to announce that we’ve raised venture capital from some formidable US companies including 500 Startups and Promus Ventures. We are now ramping up the Audiodraft service in the US market and getting more resources for our international growth. Also, our advisor board is gaining some muscle from top tier advisors including Sean McCullough, Yee Lee, Thomas Ryan and Sami Inkinen. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such prolific companies and advisors as we take Audiodraft to the next level. So, very big thanks to everyone involved!
Here are a few greetings from our new investors:
“Custom audio is a huge international market in dire need of disruption. Audiodraft’s unique platform gives a much-needed solution for brands, publishers, agencies, sound designers, and composers. We’re seeing terrific demand for the product and are excited to be involved.”
– Mike Collett, Managing Partner at Promus Ventures.
“What struck me about the Audiodraft team is their strong music background and the fact that audio production is near and dear to their heart. They aren’t just chasing after a market. We’re excited to have them join the 500 Family and look forward to helping them grow their customer base and expand even further globally.”
– Christine Tsai, Partner at 500 Startups.
