With the vast possibilities of the Internet, it seems much easier to be discovered and to gain a foothold in the global music scene than 25 years ago when UMEK started first. As he can testify, not much has changed in the artist's eternal dilemma: how do you find and secure the next performance without sacrificing too much time and energy that could be better spent in the studio?
When UMEK and his team discovered that there was no unique, user-friendly, and comprehensive tool that could bring the right industry people together and help talented artists break through, they decided to simply make their own. That was the original idea for Viberate. Today, it's a $ 40 million music tech startup that employs 120 music enthusiasts worldwide.
Viberate is a global music platform designed to bring order to the chaotic world of live music, in which information and contacts are scattered throughout the Internet. On a mission to build the world's largest music network, it has brought together more than a million artists, venues, events and festivals in one place, providing them with the valuable data and tools they need to make better business decisions. Viberate supports musicians by offering them a place where they can easily present their music, be noticed by industry professionals and find new performance opportunities all over the world.
