We are excited to welcome to our ever-growing community some amazing companies this month. Here is a highlight of the new faces:

Bandcamp is on a mission to provide a great service for artists and labels to share and earn money from their music, and for fans to discover and enjoy it.
When you buy something on Bandcamp, whether it’s digital music, vinyl, or a t-shirt, ticket or cassette, 80-85% of your money goes to the artist. The remainder goes to payment processor fees and Bandcamp’s revenue share, which is 10-15% on digital items, and 10% on physical goods.
Fans have paid artists $286 million using their platform, and $7.2 million in the past 30 days alone. :-O
Hailing from the United States, Bandcamp was founded in 2007, have been profitable since 2012. And very recently entered the Kenyan market – finding a home at Nairobi Garage, Ngong Road space.
The New York Times called Bandcamp “one of the greatest underground-culture bazaars of our time,” Fast Company named us one of the most innovative companies in music, and the American Association of Independent Music honored us with their 2017 Independent Champion award.
We’re looking forward to seeing how things take off for you in East Africa!
