Jamendo: Mangrove strikes again



Mangrove is all over the VC news at the moment with funding for OpenAds (hi James :-)), Zlio, Quintura (old news but recently announced) and now Jamendo.

Jamendo is a creative commons music publishing and discovery
platform.  Music is streamable, downloadable, reusable, mashable, whatever.  The business model relies on building different monetization methods for the music and the artists (I shan’t say anymore) and not necessarily on a creative B2C model a la AmieStreet. Worth checking out Sellaband (A&R) or Sonific (promotions) in the Euro startup scene.

I like anything that helps reinvent the music / recorder media value chain like this and hope they will do well.  In the meantime here is a nice piece of Belgian Electronica for you :-)

    Thanks for the entry in your blog …

    Since you write about them, you’re right, Bryan Garnier made a fantastic job helping Jamendo opening doors, pitching in front of a long list of famous VC. Greg, Guillaume and Imran, I use Fred’s blog entry to publicly confirm you made a fantastic “closer” job.
