COMPANY OVERVIEW

Why We Started This Company

The Gigmor mission is simple: provide musicians a best-in-class, subscription-based platform that enables musicians and bands to play and gig more.

Gigmor is a network focused on connecting millions of musicians and bands to career and gigging opportunities. Gigmor has developed a proprietary algorithm for musical compatibility that creates a simple way for musicians to meet compatible players and bands, organize events (jam sessions, auditions, workshops), and connect with paying gigs and other career opportunities. We plan to transform how live music is booked and are developing a Gigscore, a proprietary analytics tool to help talent buyers find the right emerging artists–Klout for bands. Live music at clubs, events, parties and weddings is a huge business ($3B+) and our goal is to capture a large share of that revenue by becoming the dominant online booking platform–Uber for live music.

What Sets Us Apart

We put musicians first. We believe that music makes the world a better place. As Bono said, “Music can change the world because it can change people.” What gets us stoked every morning is helping musicians play more, whether it’s jamming for fun, getting discovered or making a living doing what they love.

Musicians live in a DIY world and we are creating technology that will empower them to build their careers

Our Keys To Success

We are uniquely positioned to service the needs of musicians on a global scale with the Gigmor platform. Based in Los Angeles, the music capital of the world, our team is comprised of accomplished, experienced individuals that have held key digital commerce, marketing and technology positions at global brands including AOL, Yahoo! and AEG Live.
