    ◎著名的音樂製作人Quincy Jones在音樂科技初創公司Jammcard的100萬美元種子輪募資中領投。Jammcard是音樂行業的專業人士網絡,被富比世雜誌稱為「音樂人的LinkedIn」。

    ◎Jammcard透過僅限受邀者使用的社群網絡來連結音樂社群,並舉辦經過審查的專業人士和僅限會員的獨家活動。該應用程式已舉辦過Gwen Stefani、Zedd、Maren Morris、PARTYNEXTDOOR、Jason Derulo和Grace VanderWaal等歌手的現場樂團演出活動,此外,Jammcard還策劃了一個名為JammJam的每月特別現場活動,像是接管Tower Records和Capitol Records。

    ◎這個總部位在洛杉磯的公司,在今年夏天擴展到亞特蘭大和納許維爾。今年早些時候,該應用程式在Good Design USA Award(美國優良設計獎)中獲得了最佳使用者介面/使用者體驗獎項。Jammcard還與葛萊美獎和YouTube建立了原創內容合作夥伴關係。該網絡目前已計劃在美國其他主要的音樂城市繼續發展。

    Quincy Jones has led a $1 million seed funding round in music tech startup Jammcard. The music industry professionals network has been called the "LinkedIn for musicians" by Forbes.

    Jammcard connects the music community via an invite-only social network for vetted pros and exclusive, members-only events. The app is credited with assembling live bands for Gwen Stefani, Zedd, Maren Morris, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Jason Derulo and Grace VanderWaal. In addition, Jammcard curates a signature monthly live event called the JammJam, which have included takeovers of Tower Records and Capitol Records.

    This summer, the Los Angeles-founded collective expanded to Atlanta and Nashville.

    "I'm excited and supportive about what Jammcard is doing for music professionals, Jones said in a statement. "Jammcard elevates the industry in new ways, from connections and new opportunities, to helping represent themselves in a freelance world. Thank-Q!" – Quincy Jones

    "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," says Elmo Lovano, founder of Jammcard.

    Earlier this year, the app won Best UI/UX at the Good Design USA Award. Jammcard also has partnerships for original content with the GRAMMYs and YouTube. The network currently has plans in motion for continuing development in other major music cities across the United States.
