On 10th February, the music industry took centre stage as we explored everything from where the investment opportunities are to what markets are waiting to be tapped into, and how angels could look to dip their toes into the sector.
Hosted by UKBAA and ScaleUp Institute, this deep dive was part of the new Invest in Creative toolkit developed as part of the DCMS Creative Scale-Up Programme. During this virtual discussion, Irene Graham OBE, CEO of ScaleUp Institute, sat down with Paul Pacifico, CEO of the Association of Independent Music, Zena White, Global Managing Director and SVP of Partisan Records, and David Walsh, Angel Investor and Investor Director of ClicknClear to help our community navigate the industry.
The panel came together to share their perspectives on what areas of the industry offer potential growth opportunities, offer insights on where returns are being seen, and even highlighted some excellent investment case studies. This 60-minute session was the perfect way to tap into the UK music sector and hear from the experts why you should get more curious about backing music innovators.
