In this post, lets analyze 3 popular Indian Startups with focus on Indie MusicTempostand, Muziboo and RadioVerve. A little introduction about each of them before we start.

indie.gif Tempostand: Tempostand is an outcome of the international business plan competition Eureka, organised by IIT-Bombay, won by the music portal idea of DAIICT’s third year BTech students Gaurav, Naman and Ujjwal Singh. As they moved on to implement their plan in real life, another batchmate and lead guitarist Aditya joined them. More about them here.

Muziboo: Started by two first time entrepreneurs – Prateek Dayal and Nithya Dayal, who are partners in real life as well. Born out of frustration, when Prateek composed a song for his wife and was not able to find a decent site to upload it. His wife also supported his startup idea by taking care of the marketing aspects.

Radioverve: An Internet Radio station operating out of Bangalore, run by Gaurav Vaz, a well known musician in Bangalore and Shreyas Srinivasan, an active FOSS developer, with financial support from employers and well wishers, and operational and content (RJ) inputs from friends and volunteers. The infrastructure for the station has been completely based on open source software. More about Radioverve here.

Although I asked a number of people for their opinions about these three startups, this post is purely based on my personal opinions. Now to the post.
