MTH Unboxing: MusoMind

We live in the age of strea­ming. Various plat­forms allow users to lis­ten to music any­ti­me and any­whe­re. Howe­ver, the pay­ment of the artists is not always fair. The foun­ders of Mus­o­Mind, Yuval Ron und Ishay Som­mer, are now try­ing to chan­ge this situa­ti­on with their plat­form. In the Sep­tem­ber issue of MTH Unboxing, they tell us how they want to approach the mission.

MTH Acce­le­ra­tor: What did you do befo­re start­ing Mus­o­Mind?
Mus­o­Mind: Both of us are musi­ci­ans, web deve­lo­pers and entre­pre­neurs. Yuval released his latest album and prep­ped for some tou­ring befo­re Covid pul­led the breaks on live shows. That’s when we star­ted to work on MusoMind. 

MTH Acce­le­ra­tor: What do you do when you’­re not working at Mus­o­Mind?
Mus­o­Mind: Music! We’ll always do that. Buil­ding Mus­o­Mind does take a huge amount of our time though, so we can’t make music as much as we used to. 

MTH Acce­le­ra­tor: What is Mus­o­Mind?
Mus­o­Mind: Mus­o­Mind is a music sub­scrip­ti­on plat­form for the age of strea­ming. Ima­gi­ne if Spo­ti­fy or You­Tube added a big but­ton on the top of each musician’s pro­fi­le: “Sub­scri­be to this artist”, from $1 / month. That’s us in a nutshell. 

MTH Acce­le­ra­tor: Why the MTH Acce­le­ra­tor?
Mus­o­Mind: Becau­se of the acce­le­ra­tor-mar­ket fit. The MTH Acce­le­ra­tor has some solid know­ledge and cont­acts in the media and music indus­try. This is whe­re we natu­ral­ly belong. 

MTH Acce­le­ra­tor: War­um Mus­o­Mind?
Mus­o­Mind: Becau­se as musi­ci­ans we share the pain and under­stand the huge chal­lenges artists are facing in today’s music indus­try. As entre­pre­neurs and tech guys we also have the tools to address tho­se issues effectively. 

MTH Acce­le­ra­tor: What is your mis­si­on?
Mus­o­Mind: To enable musi­ci­ans to beco­me finan­ci­al­ly self-sus­tainable by making a ste­ady living of their recor­ded music. To enable fans to take a genui­ne part in their favo­ri­te musi­ci­ans’ care­ers and show their love and appreciation.
