In the lead up to our fifth Launch Business Incubator Cohort (commencing Autumn 2020), we wanted to take this time to showcase and celebrate some of the 42 most recent businesses from Cohort 3 and 4.
We’re exploring the music industry today with Delux Music Collective, owned by Cohort 3 member Ollie Buxton.
Delux Music Collective – Ollie Buxton
An obsession with music from an early age led to Ollie’s journey into the Manchester music scene, starting to attend gigs at 14 and beginning to manage musicians since the age of 18. Despite not being musical himself, he has found a place to channel his passion for music through his business, Delux Music Collective.
The idea for the business came after Oliver had noticed that musicians were being treated poorly by promoters in the industry. He said: “It became very apparent from working with bands and in the industry that a lot of promoters don’t treat artists correctly. I wanted to start putting gigs on and events and just making sure that artists were treated correctly and paid right because there’s enough money to be made and pay everyone fairly.”
