The Music & Tech Springboard Programme: BPI's Casandra Strauss Bounces By

You'll get more than you bargain for in this episode, when BPI's Casandra Strauss moves from giving an overview of the Music & Tech Springboard Programme to providing a compelling list of categories that music tech companies can help solve in the music industry from A&R to music discovery among casual listeners. Think of the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) as the UK equivalent of RIAA. Think of Strauss as an up and coming thought leader in music tech!
