When I set off to cycle around the world, I committed to starting seven new startup projects along the way. The trip was somewhat interrupted by COVID-19 but my startup plans continued unabated.
Here’s what I’ve launched so far:
Startup #1: SendMusic (Co-Founder) SHUT DOWN
This first startup is all thanks to my friend Kemal. As I was prepping to leave London, he showed me a project he’d been working on for months – SendMusic – and as soon as I saw it I was in. At its core, SendMusic gets new music into the world by offering tools for the music industry to manage and share music.

Startup #2: StreamOn (Founder) EXITED
Continuing on from where I left off with Chew, StreamOn lets live streamers broadcast to multiple live streaming platforms from a single connection, saving bandwidth, CPU and reaching a new audience all in one. The StreamOn project was acquired in 2021.
Startup #3: Audio for Mac FAILED
On the 3rd of July 2019, I launched Audio on Kickstarter – the music app for DJs and music collectors – in response to Apple announcing the death of iTunes. I got great support, press and feedback but among a number of issues, subscription software was a hard sell on Kickstarter and the details of Apple’s new Music app cover the requirements for most. You can still view the Kickstarter here.
Startup #4: ASO Giraffe (Developer)
I’ve been helping Fede bring ASO Giraffe to life. ASO Giraffe creates web versions of your App Store and Google Play pages to run A/B tests on them. Drive more traffic to your app and get more downloads. You can try the app with a 14-day trial right now.
Startup #5: Aux (Founder)
Music Production technology centres around several dominant native apps and has done for years. Aux is a new platform that aims to deeply integrate with these music production DAWs (Digital Audio Workstation) apps to bring a new level of collaboration potential to digital audio workflows.
