Sparkplug And Studiotime Retool The Sharing Economy For The Modern Musician

Forbes – March 28, 2016

Two of the fastest-growing startups in this musical sharing economy are headquartered on opposite sides of the continent. Sparkplug, based in Brooklyn, is an online marketplace for peer-to-peer instrument and gear rentals; Studiotime, born in the Thinkbox incubator in Santa Monica, provides an open, centralized platform for discovering and booking recording studios. Just as Airbnb and Uber cater to those traveling on a budget, both Sparkplug and Studiotime empower artists to access and exchange the creative resources necessary to make the best music in the most cost-effective manner, while allowing those renting out their own assets to make additional income.
