A New Era for 8tracks

One of the things I’ve learned since starting 8tracks eight years ago is that life is absolutely full of surprises.

In February, we asked members of our community if they’d like to invest in 8tracks, but we never expected the amazing response we got! Over 40,000 people showed interest in owning shares in 8tracks, so we embarked on a path to make it possible.

We began 8tracks with a simple premise: the best music discovery experiences happen through people. Today, every single one of the 2,000,000+ playlists people have created on 8tracks reminds us how a shared love of music can build a true community.

With funding, we’ll be empowered to bring 8tracks to a global audience, introduce support for new platforms, enable easy playlist creation on web and mobile, and create a better, more personalized listening experience for everyone.

After months of preparation, I’m happy to announce that 8tracks is now accepting investments through the SeedInvest platform. Join us!
