“How to Grow Your Music Career by Treating it as a Startup Business”

February 8 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Speaker: Jared Judge | “How to Grow Your Music Career by Treating it as a Startup Business”

Growing a music career is a challenging endeavor. The traditional advice is to practice and master your art. While this creates a solid foundation, many musicians end up having to support their music with a full-time job outside of music. What if we treated a music career like a startup business and learned to market and sell our musical services? In this talk, Jared Judge shares his experience with this journey and how it enabled him and thousands of musicians to make a living doing what they love. This even is the result of collaboration between the University Innovation Fellows, the Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization, and the LEC.

Jared Judge has had a diverse career in Music and Technology, as well as being a part of the Startup Challenge. Having earned two degrees in music, he served as an elementary and high school band director and ran a non-profit opera house. As a self-proclaimed “tech geek,” he has built many websites and apps. When he launched his wedding string quartet, Dream City Strings, it immediately became the top-gigging string quartet in Milwaukee. Shortly after, he launched BookLive as a tool to automate much of the administrative work and to help other musicians run profitable live music businesses. Jared now coaches hundreds of performing groups on making a living off of music.
