In response to music:
With pressure mounting to monetize parallel audiences, the Music Industry and its record labels (Warner Music Group, EMI, BMG, PolyGram, etc.), will learn from tech-accelerators and VC’s as they SIGN fashion designers and apparel / accessory brands to lucrative equity deals with their labels.
Strategy: Tech Accelerator + Brand Showroom + Marketing Engine + Luxury Goods Holding Company + Diversify Talent Portfolio + Culturally Relevant Synergies = Profitable Record Label of The Future
Just a thought.
