How To Find Music Industry Angel Investors & Venture Capitalists Looking For Talent

Written by Jaron Lewis

So you want to make a go of it in the music industry? Firstly you need to think of your music as a business, and something that you will need to invest in, both in money and in time, in order to grow it and make it, ultimately, profitable.

And choosing the way in which you want to fund your music career will determine which path you take. You can pick a publicist, a brilliant producer, and then, perhaps most importantly, an investor.

The Reason You Need An Investor

And let’s be clear, you are not asking for money for nothing, you are asking for a donation to allow you to continue to hone your craft without worrying about money. This gives you the chance to be fully dedicated to your music, without a part-time job to supplement your music.

The investors on the other hand will be able to watch you grow, talent-wise and followers-wise, and then they will get a return on their investment in a few years. What’s not to love?

How To Start

So how do you go about this then? Firstly you need to own the assets that you are going to offer music investors, i.e. your recorded songs, and the rights to your music. This means that any investors looking for a music project will be covered legally.

Then secondly you need to understand that you cannot treat your investment as a loan, you don’t need to pay it back but then again it isn’t a voluntary donation - if you make money from your music, it’s only fair that they should too.

Essentially You Are Hiring A Business Partner

Finding a music investor who is looking for talent in 2018 means that you are finding someone to work alongside you, with mutual interests and therefore, mutual benefits. You’re essentially hiring a business partner.

 This means that you will have a long-term plan which will work better than if you were working week by week on your own. It also forces you to take your music seriously as a business, rather than as a hobby. A little more pressure to succeed can be good for increased levels of production.

Who Are The Investors

And who are these investors? Well, they can be anyone who has some money that they would like to invest in you. Be it a local business, a big brand to back you or even someone you know who has a bit of money and they’ve been with you from the start.

In Conclusion

Finally, in order to successfully land a music investor for 2018, have a think about what your story as an artist is? How would you sell this to potential investors, and what’s your hook that make you different from every other artist out there?once you’ve figured that one out, you’re sorted.
