One of the features of the second edition of the Startup Weekend Harare was a special “Elevator Pitch” acapela performance from local Hip Hop artist, Tehn Diamond. This was the same pitch that he went on to perform at Emerging Ideas’ Pitch Night.
Tehn has a fascination with technology and startups, and how the internet has started shaping business, particularly in the 21st century. We managed to have a chat with him on the impact of tech in music (something we also talked about in this article) and how this is now evident even in the Zimbabwean setting.
In this podcast Tehn Diamond shares his own thoughts on tech, business modelling techniques that have now crossed over from tech startups and now shape music business models and how he has managed to build a strong presence and image thanks to the power of the internet.
Have any thoughts on how industries like music need tech to grow or how tech has been the big disruptor of the entertainment industry? Please share in the comments below.
