Music Gateway is a collaboration marketplace for music projects, and a place to post and get gigs. The company is strongly opposed to ‘pay-to-pitch’ services and started their platform to generate real opportunities instead of hope. Already, Music Gateway counts 20,000 professionals on its platform, and a mission to bring real online collaboration to the music-creation process.
Now, the company is putting some cash behind their mission.
According to details shared with Digital Music News this morning, Gateway has allocated £25,000, or roughly $38,000, to help boost artists and creative projects in their early stages.
Other assistance will come in the form of direct advice and guidance. “We’ve received some amazing support from our founding members, some of which came on board pre-launch in 2013 and are still using the site now and have been on the journey with us” explains Gateway CEO Jon Skinner.
“This isn’t the first time that we have run project campaigns like this and it won’t be the last, but it’s a personal vision of mine to ensure that over time we can genuinely say that we have made a difference. We want to help people make the right connections on a global scale.”
