ANote Music is the European marketplace for investing in music royalties and was founded in Luxembourg by Marzio F. Schena, Matteo Cernuschi, and Grégoire Mathonet in January 2018. ANote Music has identified the power of music as the next big investment opportunity and created a bridge between the music industry and the capital markets.
It enables publishers, record labels, and artists to sell music rights, introducing them to a new system of financing, as well as offering users a new investment opportunity and the chance to own shares in promising artists. In January 2020, ANote Music closed a €500,000-plus funding round, led by the European music industry’s foremost players.
ANote Music is also supported by Luxinnovation, the Luxembourg national innovation agency, providing access to government funding for the startup. They also recently announced it will officially launch to the public on 28th July, 2020.
