From Amsterdam to the world
ABOSS stands for Artist Back Office System: the company allows professionals from the entertainment industry to centrally manage their finances, logistics and production online. It’s a solution to an issue that is universal and stretches across borders, and with Keadyn on board, ABOSS is expanding its business globally. The startup is already serving clients in the United States, Germany, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and Australia, while in the Netherlands, it counts DJs and producers such as Armin van Buuren and Oliver Heldens and leading booking agencies including David Lewis Productions, Hekwerk Theaterproducties and 010 Bookings amongst its clients.
A great step forward
Keadyn is more than happy about the partnership. According to Martijn Don, founding partner at Keadyn, “ABOSS is a great step forward in terms of efficiency and accuracy for artists, artist managers and booking agencies in the music industry. ABOSS proves to add value for the biggest names in the dance scene. We are proud to be part of ABOSS and look forward to work together on solving a real problem for music professionals around the world.”
Experience with the industry
ABBOSS’s product idea stems from many years of experience in the music industry. The startup’s co-founder Arvid Silos worked in the industry for a long time: “We have seen the struggle of artists trying to focus on their creative talents while practical things get in the way. We believe that a magical thing such as music should never be obstructed by practical issues – back-office bullshit. That’s why we’ve built ABOSS, a suite of online tools to improve efficiency, provide insights and create transparency between artists, bookings agents and managers. To make sure each of these can focus on what they do best to make magic happen. Whether it’s producing music, guiding the artist or connecting the art of music with fans and venues around the world.”
With co-investors such as Tom Holkenborg (aka Junkie XL) and Fatih Kahyaoglu (former commercial director of ID&T), ABOSS has already won the hearts of many experts in the field.
