BandLab, Music Tectonic to Spot the Next Hot Music Tech Startups

BandLab announces support for the Music Tectonics Conference pitch competition. Applications are now open for “BandLab Presents Swimming with Narwhals: A Music Tech Startup Competition” at the 2021 Music Tectonics Conference.
The conference takes place online on two innovative event platforms on October 25–27, and in-person in the Los Angeles area on November 2.
“One of our biggest company values at BandLab is innovation,” says BandLab CEO Meng Ru Kuok. “On a personal basis, I’m excited by the possibilities out there beyond what we already do within our wider group. I’m passionate about supporting the future BandLabs of the world.”
At Music Tectonics’ 2021 conference, Kuok’s vision leads to a pitch competition that’s no shark tank. Narwhals are the gentle unicorns of the sea. And Kuok’s dedication to music tech innovation translates into tangible incentive for the pitching startups: his personal investment fund Caldecott Ventures has earmarked up to $50,000 to invest in one of the competition winners.
