About this project

While online music streaming may be great for fans, it is making it harder and harder for independent and emerging artists to make a living. With declining album sales and low streaming royalties, artists are earning less than ever before. This means less money to put in to recording and touring which is bad for everyone! 

We're here to help. 

Groupy is a new rewards-based app that allows music fans to support their favourite independent and emerging artists through a credit based 'e-currency'. Groupy links with a fan’s music streaming services and social media, allowing them to build 'kudos' for each for each online stream and social media engagement. In return, the fan can redeem these kudos for discounted tickets, merchandise, venue food/drinks, exclusive promotions at live music venues, and more!

The idea is simple: listen to more music, go to more gigs and help your favourite artists make a living. 

However right now Groupy is only a dream, and we need your help to make it a reality. Donate now to see the dream come alive. 

Thanks, 

The Groupys

Risks and challenges

There are three main risks associated with Groupy:
1. Listeners won't use the app
2. Artists wont engage with the app
3. Venues wont support the app

Over the past few months we have been working tirelessly to examine each of these risks and we can confidently say that the risk is pretty low.
We've interviewed and run demo tests with countless listeners, artists and venues to validate our idea to the point that it is ready for funding.
