WHAT IS BANDALOO?

Bandaloo is a new musical event that seeks to increase collaboration between local musicians. The goal was to create the first ever hackathon for musicians where they would have 48-hours to form a band, write a song, and perform live.

Kate Leisy (another 2013 Venture for America Fellow) and I used a crowdfunding campaign to fund Bandaloo. By focusing on social media, outbound sponsorship sales, and growing its online presence, we were able to raise enough money for four events.
