Local entrepreneur Jonathan Sexton’s Bandposters has been selected as one of 10 start-ups to be showcased at tomorrow’s “SF MusicTech Summit.” The Knoxvillian’s latest start-up, first mentioned in a teknovation.biz article in late 2013, provides an economical way for individual musicians or bands to design, print and ship posters to every venue on their tour.
Bandposters joins nine other companies in the “Start-up Innovators Challenge.” Click here for a list of the winners.
As far as the “SF MusicTech Summit,” the organization’s webpage describes Tuesday’s as a vehicle to bring “together visionaries in the evolving music/business/technology ecosystem, along with the best and brightest developers, entrepreneurs, investors, service providers, journalists, musicians, and organizations who work with them at the convergence of culture and commerce.”
“The ‘SF MusicTech Summit’ has been bringing together the best in digital media and music tech start-ups from all over the world for years,” Sexton said. “Being acknowledged by a panel of judges that includes Bay Area Digital Media VC’s like Walden Capital and MusicTech Giants like Echo Nest and Spotify is really humbling and exciting and a huge vote of confidence for the vision that Mike Fabio, Travis Vignon (my Co-Founders), and I have been working on for the last year. We are really proud to be able to represent Tennessee (Knoxville and Nashville) out in the Bay Area at this really great event, and hopefully can use the opportunity to shine a brighter light not only on what we are doing, but on all the great music and media companies coming out of Tennessee.”
