IndiePro to Undergo $5m Investment Round With Wishares.cl

SARNIA, Ontario, April 3, 2019 /CNW/ -- IndiePro, a new U.S.-based marketplace that connects independent musicians with service providers, has successfully entered into their private sale phase and is on target for the public release of their app for iOS and Android. Indiepro.app will empower independent artists to schedule services through a location-based directory that also has an integrated fraud prevention payment platform.
"There is no all-in-one solution that exists for artists to book a nearby recording studio, music video shoot, or even models and cars. It doesn't end there. Part of the platform is a remote marketplace where musicians can find everything in-between, from branding and artwork to PR agents and AR services," stated CEO Giovanni Perez. He also added, "Musicians want to see ratings from their peers before booking services and have been burned in the past due to sketchy payment methods. Our platform addresses these concerns while, at the same time, curbing out-of-pocket expenses for bands and singers."
The IndiePro platform does not charge a fee to advertise or a fee to search the service provider database. Listings include such categories as models, videographers, musicians, and dozens more. The team has hit all of their benchmarks from their roadmap and is excited about the impending release of the marketplace. "The serviceable available market of independent music labels is somewhere around $6 billion. Our goal is to enter that market then expand into the global music market at all levels," according to COO Danny Verdejo-Ortiz. "Yes, we understand that there are some very established companies out there but we have listened to what the artists want and IndiePro addresses those wants and needs," continued Verdejo-Ortiz.
The IndiePro team has assembled an all-star line-up of both Urban and Latino artists as brand ambassadors to help spread the word about the marketplace. "Walter Jones has made it possible to assemble this incredible group of talent," according to CEO Perez. "The roster of our brand ambassadors will instantly give us recognition across multiple musical genres. Walter Jones knocked it out of the park due to his level of success and ability to form relationships with artists such as Nicky Jam, Daddy Yankee, Farruko, and world-renowned sound engineer Richard Diaz."
Music veteran Lawrence Freiberg added, "I think IndiePro's fast track tools can accelerate worthy musicians to become recognized and successful talents."
"We only take a commission when booking or transactions occur within our marketplace. We aim to level the 'playing field' by providing a streamlined, yet affordable way, for musicians to conduct business in a timely way," according to CTO Andrew Aponte.
With an easy to navigate interface and a clear vision of the future by the leadership board, IndiePro is positioned to be an innovator in how musicians conduct business in 2019 and beyond.
"In Wishares, we work so that our macro projects save the planet and that the Startup efforts that we support improve the quality of life of the people," Nicolás Cristóbal-Muñoz , Founder of Wishares.cl, said. "Every day we apply soul to business since it is 1000 percent more profitable than greed. We want to contribute from Chile to the change that businesses need."
