Seattle-based SyncFloor, the innovative music marketplace for sync discovery and licensing, has raised a new round of funding. Ascend.vc and Arnold Venture Group are leading the round, reaffirming their commitment to SyncFloor’s vision and business.
“We connect creatives to the music they love to enhance the stories they tell,” explains Kirt Debique, co-founder and CEO of SyncFloor. “Empowering production professionals to easily discover the beautiful and diverse content available from the commercial independent music sector, we do our part to make a better media industry and democratize access to opportunity. We raised this additional funding to further our vision, and we’re excited we were able to garner this kind of support.”
SyncFloor.com, commercially launched earlier this year, is a music discovery and licensing hub representing tracks from SyncFloor’s 53 catalog partners (and growing). SyncFloor uses the same music discovery technology and platform to provide customized online sync stores to its partners, including notable independent distributors (e.g., TuneCore and Create Music Group) and international labels (such as JioSaavn Artist Originals, Maven Records, and Motor Music).
With music playing a growing role in podcasts and podcasters struggling to navigate the license process, SyncFloor also launched SongsForPodcasters.com earlier this year.
This new round of funding will help the company continue to build its offerings and brand in a space in need of technological and licensing innovation. “We believe SyncFloor has the potential to transform this sector of the music industry, and we’re excited to continue to support them on their journey,” says Kirby Winfield, Founding General Partner of Ascend.vc
