INNER CIRCLE
The concept

Did you know that one in ten people on the planet plays a musical instrument? That’s over 700 million people! And there is an even bigger crowd that would love to play a musical instrument. 

Unfortunately, 90% of people trying to learn an instrument quit in their first year. Music lessons are expensive, exercises become boring and practising is repetitive. 

That’s why we’ve created Chordify. Chordify is a music e-learning platform that transforms any song into chords. With our state-of-the-art music technology, we reshape music education by creating affordable, engaging, and personalized products: Chordify makes it as easy as possible to learn your favorite music. Our service has gained impressive organic traction. This traction illustrates the natural demand for our product, and for music making in general.

Purpose of investment

Chordify generates healthy revenue to support management, operations, sales, and investments in chord recognition research and product development. We seek an investment to accelerate our product and market development. These fund will be allocated to three important improvements. 

Mobile – Our website is optimized for mobile use and we have recently launched our iOS app. However, we want to create an additional revenue stream by adding our premium plans to the iOS app and port the app to the Android platform.
Social – We make the Chordify platform more social by allowing our users to track, collect and share their practising history and music preferences. Think of it as last.fm for music practising.
Embedded player – Influencers from the music industry will be used to promote the Chordify Embedded Player. The Chordify Embedded Player allows artists, festivals and teachers to have the Chordify experience embedded on their own website.
