About Ian

In 2009 I co-founded Score Revolution a technology driven music-licensing platform. Being at the intersection of music and technology has given me a deep understanding of the rapidly evolving media landscape. I am a passionate advocate of entrepreneurs and currently aid early stage companies in the media-tech sector with innovation, business development and financing strategies.

I have a proven expertise in recognizing how technologies and companies can be combined to create new business opportunities and applications. As an inventor I was recently granted a patent for a new media search technology that is used to more effectively discover music in large catalogs.
