Quotes:

“This is a really green space. There’s lots of ways that venues and bands need help and so there’s an opportunity for various subscription services, which I’m kind of testing a little bit, but definitely opportunities to monetize.” - Andrea Harding, (6:21)

 

“They don’t have any of that information. They’ve never even booked events. And so that’s the ideal customer because they really could benefit from a platform like Zipgig.” - Andrea Harding, (12:12)

 

“We really just wanna grow and we want to bring live music to places and make it easy where you might have a hard time booking.” - Andrea Harding, (25:35)
