Eggs 258: Creating a world-class social networking experience with Josh Simons

Hey everyone and welcome back to Eggs. This week we have a great guest in store for you. Today we’re chatting with Josh Simons, the CEO, and co-founder of Vampr, the world’s largest and most active social-professional network for musicians. Recognized by Fast Company as one of the Most Innovative Companies in 2022, Vampr is home to over one million users and is active in every country on the planet. In fact, the music startup has helped fledgling musicians broker over 7 million connections worldwide since its inception.

Prior to running Vampr, Josh spent the better part of a decade as a musician himself, a successful artist, songwriter & producer in his own right. However, after changing his focus from performing live, to performing tech miracles, Josh and his team at Vampr have built the app into a multi-award-winning platform, including a most prestigious nod from Apple with inclusion in their Best of the Year list.

Joining us today for an exciting conversation about building a social media platform specifically for musicians, building an award-winning social network and securing more than $3 million in funding, overcoming the obstacles in the modern music landscape, and so much more. Please join us in welcoming to the show, Josh Simons.
