Hear from our Community

“Part of the reason we have been so successful in raising millions of dollars in capital is because Project Music gave us a huge first-mover advantage. We were shown massive problems in full-color, up close and personal, described by industry experts in intimate settings—problems yielding profitable opportunities—long before potential competitors even knew they existed. It was a game changer for us.”
– Marcus Cobb, Jammber (Project Music 2015)
