My name is Nicholas Gray and I am the founder of OPEN MIC LTD. I have recently graduated from the University of Reading. My passion and drive for music over recent years has forced my hands in creating a mobile application for individuals in the music industry. I saw my friends involved in music struggling to propel their music careers so I wanted to help and I saw a gap in the market through creating a platform to connect upcoming music artists with other music artists, producers, managers, DJs, record labels and events companies. My vision for my company is to change the way individuals in the music industry network and connect with one another. At the same time, I want to ensure upcoming individuals and companies in the music industry have better opportunities to expand their networks and create job opportunities.
My co-founder Cameron Okomi is a an owner of a digital marketing agency that specialises in helping small to medium sized businesses grow their digital presence. As an experienced digital marketer, Cameron is and will continue to assist the company in growing a lasting relationship with all our users and future customers via all social media platforms. His experience in marketing is extremely beneficial to the current and future growth and sales of the company. He played an instrumental part in gaining the company over 500 users to the prototype version of our application.
My second co-founder Philip Mokoulu has recently graduated from the University of Bristol. Philip is also a co-founder of a finance publication called Fin Foc. His experience in the finance industry is vital to the financial growth and prosperity of the company. Moreover, Philip's experience in banking and finance has already been proven beneficial to the fundamental structure of building the company.
To explain further, our company is a professional networking company for individuals in the music industry. We connect upcoming music artists with other music artists, producers, managers, DJs, record labels and events companies. This platform will operate via an online application which will be provided free to download. We plan to monetize our platform through membership plans and marketing.
The money will be used to develop a full mobile application, marketing and further research and development. Through the development of the app we will be able to provide a valuable service to our customers. Once we have gained enough traction we will be able to monetize our app through membership plans in order to provide an even better service to our customers. At the same time, our network will expand meaning individuals using our platform will be able to make the necessary connections that will assist in progressing their music careers.
