Next up, Jeff chats with Erik Nelson, co-owner of FanFlex, a music-tech platform for artists and venues that efficiently and profitably allows for the scheduling and booking of shows, tours and premium fan experiences.

During the interview, Nelson shares:

  • How he took his great idea and built it into a business
  • How FanFlex works for both independent venues and local, independent artists
  • How FanFlex has pivoted its revenue model during the pandemic
  • The future of FanFlex
