Partly due to PalmSounds but also for a number of other reasons I have, and continue to get involved with a number of start ups of all shapes and sizes, and also from a variety of industries.

With a lot of these (and here I’m focussing in on music tech start ups) they can find their way to Tech Pitch 4.5 Music, which is an event for Music Tech Start ups to pitch their ideas to an audience of press and potential investors.

TechPitch 4.5 Music (now called Tech Pitch Music, Media and Entertainment) is part of the TechPitch 4.5 series, conceived, organised and executed by 2PearsIf you want to know more about  Tech Pitch 4.5Music and the wider community and ecosystem it’s a part of then take a look at this video:

You can hear me speaking briefly at about a minute into the video.

If you’d like to know more about Tech Pitch then get in touch and we can talk about when our next dates are and possibilities around getting involved.

The other opportunity for music tech start ups (apps or hardware) is for you to come along to SoundLab, which is a project at Heart n Soul (an amazing charity that works with people with learning disabilities). I’ve been involved with Heart n Soul for some years now and it is a great place for new music technologies to get tested with our artists and participants.

If you want to know a bit more about SoundLab, then check out this page.

If you’d like to know even more, or you want to get in touch and see if there’s a way you can either be involved in Music Tech Pitch 4.5, or SoundLab, then please feel free to get in touch. I can be reached via  email at: ashley [at] palmsounds [dot] net.

One area that I get asked about a lot is how to build audience and develop key social metrics for a start up. Whilst I can’t personally help directly with this, my friends at Netleadz are really good at this and have a huge amount of experience.

Here’s what they do …


If you’re interested I can put you in touch with them (contact me as per above), you can also download the PDF below.
