The Money Monsters Experience for Beginners, Billions for Winners

ESNS22_picto_black_.png The cash infusions by external investors are becoming a game changer for the music industry. Public Funds, Private Equity or Venture Capital supply more that just financial resources enabling growth phantasies or equity stories. From live music to recorded music, almost every business segment in the music industry currently is being affected by this movement. In fact investments in music ventures aren't something new, but nowadays sums reached news levels rather reaching billions instead of millions. From listings on stock markets towards acquisitions financed by investors, the overall financial volume significantly went up, imposingly indicating that the music business turned into a reasonable investment opportunity. Wait a minute, what does this mean and whom are now the ones which now have to please either stake holders or share holders?
