Hope you’re having a great week at home or if you’re in the parts of the world where things are going back to normal the office!
There’s many great updates in the industry the past few weeks but here are some highlights:
The Chainsmokers raised a $35 million in commitments for their brand new early stage fund, Mantis. They will be investing with the mindset of products or services which their fans may find useful. You can hear more about it on their appearance on 20VC here
Bandcamp’s fee free Fridays have set the company apart from competitors during the COVID pandemic and helped them build an artist-friendly approach to releases. The LA Times took notice and covered the company from an “anti-Spotify” perspective which does take some of the uniqueness of the platform as a digital service offering away.
Hope the rest of your week is productive and see you next week!
