Venture Atlanta - startup spotlight

Located in the heart of Buckhead at Atlanta Tech Village, a hub for start-ups in Atlanta, is a company and publication "Venture Atlanta". Venture Atlanta hosts an annual venture capital investment event and is a popular magazine and blog for investers and entrepreneurs alike. In the summer of 2014 they were focused on the Atlanta music scene and its accompanying technology, or lack thereof.

A writer from the company reached out to me and my business partner because we had recently attended an event associated with the company to get some exposure and industry information about our start-up "Flipxter" at the time, later rebranded as "Livebarre". Livebarre is an iOS application that focuses on streaming music, specifically streaming live performances of music, which at the time was something that no other music streaming company had considered. With our unique approach to the streaming industry the magazine wanted to cover us in their "Turning up the volume" segment for the online publication.

It was a lot of fun to talk about the app and the vision we had for it. This was my first interview where I had no idea how it was going to turn out. We waited for 2 long weeks for the article to be published and we were excited about how it turned out. Unfortunately we didn't have the resources to fully capitalize on this exposure and now, 2 years later, this is basically what apple music is. The silver lining is we were on to this 2 years before the big guys thought of it and to me, that's a win.
