About Us

ME Ventures was started by an international team of seasoned professionals from music, and media tech to global business development; enabling us to identify high potential music and media companies, breakthrough technologies and industry leaders. The team’s creative approach to investing employs a non-traditional investment strategy centered on empowering underserved creative communities, providing hands on mentorship and developing a direct to consumer ecosystem.

We are Music & Media Innovators, Leaders and Entrepreneurs

After starting with the Music Entrepreneur Conference at Harvard University’s Science Center in 2018, we’ve become a global community hub for music and media innovation, industry leadership and education series for the rising creator economy (as seen in Billboard, Forbes, NYU Music, and more).

With years of successful experience as music entrepreneurs touring the world, selling millions of records, and working with today’s top artists, athletes and celebs the ME team knows the challenges and opportunities of rising creative entrepreneurs.

After years of developing our events, online education programs and working with industry leaders; our global network of partners, speakers, educators, sponsors and investors has given us the ability to pinpoint tech needs and high potential opportunities.

As we continue to build the global ME community, we invest in the very technologies and services they need to create, grow and succeed. We cultivate a direct link to a global community of artists, influencers and entrepreneurs to promote our future investments and accelerate the growth of our companies.

The future of the creator economy begins here.
