    ◎免費線上平台Dash Radio宣布已經籌集了880萬美元的種子資金,同時每月活躍用戶已超過1000萬人。Dash Radio在75個電台提供超過400場的現場表演,其中許多是由名人主持,包括Snoop Dogg、Lil Wayne和Ice Cube。Dash Radio的秘密武器是一種經由策劃、個人化驅動的輕鬆的體驗。

    ◎Spotify、Apple Music、Deezer等都在爭奪串流音樂市場的市佔率,但是線上廣播,特別是線上直播電台仍是一個廣開大門的領域,Dash Radio的創始人Scott Keeney (DJ Skee)向Techcrunch表示「這領域正是狂野的大西部」。由於Pandora全都是依靠演算法推播,而SiriusXM上只有極少數的DJ在現場播音,Dash Radio唯一的主要競爭對手是只有一個頻道的Beats 1,而它需要在Apple Music付費才能收聽。

    ◎新的880萬美元種子輪的投資者包括Nimble Ventures、Slow Ventures、Lazerow Ventures、Muzik、Arab Angel、G Ventures、Lindzon Capital Partners、資深唱片公司主管Jason Flom、Orin Snyder和Ian Schaefer。華納兄弟公司的董事長兼執行長Kevin Tsujihara和阿里巴巴前美國投資主席Michael Zeisser也有投資,並與Passport Capital的創始人John Burbank一起加入Dash Radio的董事會。

    Free online platform Dash Radio announced that it had raised $8.8 million in seed funding while passing 10 million active monthly users. Dash Radio offers 400+ live shows across 75 stations, many hosted by celebrity DJ's including Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne and Ice Cube.

    Dash Radio's 'secret sauce' is a curated, personality-driven, lean back experience.

    Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer and others are all battling for streaming music market share. But online radio, particularly live online radio, is a wide open sector. "It's the wild, wild west." founder Scott Keeney (DJ Skee) told Techcrunch. With Pandora all about algorithms and very few live DJ's spinning on SiriusXM, Dash's only major competitor is single-channel Beats 1, which sits behind the Apple Music paywall.

    Investors in the new $8.8 million seed round include Nimble Ventures, Slow Ventures, Lazerow Ventures, Muzik, Arab Angel, G Ventures, Lindzon Capital Partners, veteran record label executive Jason Flom, Orin Snyder and Ian Schaefer. Warner Bros. chairman and CEO Kevin Tsujihara and Alibaba's former chairman of U.S. investments Michael Zeisser are also invested and along with Passport Capital founder John Burbank are joining the Dash Radio Board.
