HOLLYWOOD, Calif., April 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- mydiveo™ today announced development of its global artist discovery video platform and creative network for music lovers. The new site and companion app will help artists, music fans, brands and scouts find talent worldwide – signaling a new chapter in the ongoing evolution of the music industry.
"There's a void in the current marketplace for a mobile, easy-to-navigate platform to find talent that also helps artists network with each other," said Driss Ouazzani, co-founder and acting CEO of mydiveo. "We listened to what artists and the industry said they need to expedite discovery and responded with a new website/app that lets users create a mobile portfolio and video resume."
mydiveo will enable artists, music lovers, industry professionals and brands to connect, collaborate and engage. The platform will streamline the process of finding new artists by making it easy to view, record, upload and share "diveos," talent discovery videos. The extensive proprietary database lets users effortlessly find and watch artists of interest while connecting with the ones they like.
"mydiveo, which recently launched in beta, has already demonstrated its value by connecting high-profile talent and properties. In a recent real-world test, using the new platform we helped 'America's Got Talent' look for emerging artists who could be potentially featured on the show," said Roslynn Cobarrubias, co-founder and CMO. "During the early beta process, we also captured exclusive content with social media personality Liane V. that was directed by actor/singer Quincy. To fully test-drive the capabilities of the platform – we also booked critically acclaimed Brooklyn indie-dance duo Matt & Kim and rapper King Lil G to appear on the new SkeeTV show airing weekly on FuseTV, hosted by DJ Skee."
mydiveo is in development and slated to launch summer 2015 online and will be available in the App Store and Google Play. The company is privately funded with $4 million raised to date ear-marked for platform development and operations. The website and free app will be supported by brand advertising, original content and integrated marketing programs.
The company was Co-Founded by acting CEO Driss Ouazzani, a career entrepreneur and Co-Founder CMO Roslynn Cobarrubias, an expert in talent booking, creative networking and integrated marketing. The duo's combined expertise includes founding the Third Floor Network Marketing Agency; leading Artist Relations for Myspace, one of the first social networking sites that significantly influenced pop culture and music; raising capital and helping launch both Centurion Lifestyle, the leading world-class luxury car rental company and Curbstand, the mobile app that changed the valet parking industry with a cash-less solution.
