Music tech startup Jammcard has received a new $1 million funding round raised from legendary Quincy Jones among others. Called the ‘LinkedIn for musicians,’ Jammcard is an invite-only social network for music professionals.
It provides “vetted pros” for those in need of musicianship, and exclusive, members-only events. Assembling live bands for the likes of Gwen Stefani, Zedd, Maren Morris, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Jason Derulo and Grace VanderWaal, have been its successful musical matches.
Said Elmo Lovano, founder of Jammcard: “I’m honored to have Quincy on the Jammcard team. I love that he’s continued to push jazz and real talent forward, and I can’t wait to see where our working relationship leads. Quincy’s endorsement excites me on another level, and I will use that fire to continue to work as hard as I can to grow true value for the professional music community.”
Jammcard also curates a monthly live event, the JammJam, which has included a takeovers of Capitol Records. The company also boasts partnerships for original content with the Grammys and YouTube.
“I’m excited and supportive about what Jammcard is doing for music professionals,” Jones said in a statement provided to Billboard. “Jammcard elevates the industry in new ways, from connections and new opportunities, to helping represent themselves in a freelance world.”
In addition to Jones, the company says it has a variety of angel investors and entertainment industry figures who contributed to this latest funding round.
