was born out of experience, passion and frustration. The founders started working together because we all shared a love for music, tech and communities - and wanted to combine those passions with an area (at the time) that no one else had serviced in a way we thought was suitable.
Chew was initially launched with a £10K startup loan. We branded ourselves as a live streaming production agency for music - a business where we had the live streaming infrastructure, the production expertise to actually create film and broadcast events. We had some early success working with the likes of Boiler Room
, Tate Britain
, a few big record labels and London clubs. But as first time entrepreneurs, we had no idea what we were up to from a business point of view as well as trying to serve the music industry, as two people, was too hard of a task to actually execute on.
