Alex Heiche, CEO and Founder of Sound Royalties will be joined by experts in banking and entertainment law to discuss the evolution of music financing, the recent rise in catalog multiples, and the impact observed on royalties due to the pandemic. They will explore how streaming and digital technology are changing the industry and how royalty advances can be used to scale a business and a career, especially considering the tour and live concert cancellations. They will also highlight how an independent publisher can use financing tools to acquire new content, and leverage financial institutions to fund the advances they provide to their writers and create client stickiness.
