Soundtrack creator Jukedeck wins TechCrunch Disrupt London 2015
The app beat competition from freelancer management platform Lystable to take home £30,000 prize at the annual European start-up competition
Jukedeck, a music writing software start-up, has beaten four other finalists to be announced as the winner of TechCrunch Disrupt London 2015.
The London-based start-up was chosen from an original cohort of 15 European companies to receive the £30,000 prize fund, after pitching to a panel of industry leaders including Passion Capital’s Eileen Burbidge, Balderton Capital’s Suranga Chandratillake, Accel Partners’ Fred Destin, and Young Gun Alex Depledge; co-founder of Hassle.
Launched in 2013, Jukedeck allows users to create custom, royalty free soundtracks for videos and podcasts by choosing the tempo, mood, style and length and letting the app do the rest.
The business has grown rapidly since its launch; in 2013 it won the £20,000 prize fund at tech start-up pitching competition Vator Splash London.
Its win at TechCrunch saw it beat finalists such as freelancer management platform Lystable, product marketing monitoring service Yoobic, and urban African delivery service MAX.
