It is not easy to build a social networking app that produces revenue, especially with meet platforms, which typically derive most of their income from user subscriptions. Josh Simons is the Cofounder and CEO of Vampr, an app that helps musicians discover, connect, and collaborate with fellow musicians, the music industry, and music lovers alike. Before becoming chief executive of a tech startup, Josh has been a singer and songwriter, enjoying a bit of success for a while and working with the likes of Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban. Confronting a dilemma for years about how to make money out of a meet platform without having to pressure his users to get subscriptions, he joins Mitch Russo to tell the story of how he and his team got his company to where it is now and what the app has in store for the music ecosystem in the near future.
