Jukedeck: create unique, royalty-free music online in seconds!
After graduating from Cambridge University, Patrick Stobbs and friend Ed Rex decided to create Jukedeck.  Co-founder and young entrepreneur Patrick tells us more about the inspiration behind Jukedeck, plans for the future and useful advice for other young entrepreneurs thinking about launching their own startup! jukedeck, DJ, Colours, nightclub Firstly, how many people make up the Jukedeck Team and how did you meet? 13 in the team. Ed met Patrick at the age of 8, when they had sung together in the Choir of King’s College Cambridge as choristers - and they were later undergraduates together at Cambridge University. The rest of the team are all first class musicians and software developers, including ex-professional DJ's and instrumentalists. jukedeck founders What is Jukedeck for those who have never heard of it before? Jukedeck is developing an artificially intelligent music composer that lets people create unique, royalty-free music for their videos in seconds. Our first product is Jukedeck MAKE - a site that lets video creators make unique soundtracks at the touch of a button. Watch a Juckdeck's extremely original pitch here  How does it work exactly, how can users make their own personalised tracks? You come to our site, choose a style of music, and a few seconds later you can download a completely unique soundtrack. You can even choose how long the soundtrack should be, so that it’s just the right length for your video - and we’ve got loads more features coming soon that are going to make it easier than ever to get the perfect soundtrack. jukedeck-091215 What inspired you to create Jukedeck? Visiting his girlfriend at Harvard University in 2010, Ed attended a Computer Science lecture for the first time, and decided then and there to try to teach a computer how to write music. What makes you different from other similar tech available on the market? Whilst there's a long history of computer-aided music creation, we haven't yet seen other technology like ours - i.e that enables users to create an unlimited amount of unique melodious music at the touch of a button. Did you have any entrepreneurial experience prior to the creation of Jukedeck and do you feel your university education has helped you in any way? No entrepreneurial experience, but Ed's music degree at Cambridge University introduced him to the science of music. In addition, we both spent 9 years in King's College (Cambridge University) choice, and it’s fair to say that we owe pretty much everything we know about music to the amazing musical education we received there. winners How have you managed to fund Jukedeck? We've been fortunate enough to be backed by (firstly) Cambridge University and lately Cambridge Innovation Capital, BACKED VC, Playfair Capital and other investors. The majority of your users come from what part of the world? At the moment, the majority come from the US, Europe and Japan. What has been the most challenging part of launching your own startup and what advice would you give to other hopeful, young entrepreneurs? Building a team of musicians, all set on enabling more people to create music. jukedeckteam2 What are your plans for the future of Jukedeck? In the next year you'll see more styles, moods, features and much more. Thanks for your time Patrick and we wish you and the team all the best of luck for the future!
