Amsterdam based start­up ABOSS raises 200k in a seed round and on­boards Keadyn as new investor, preparing for international expansion.

Amsterdam­ based startup ABOSS closed its first seed round, raising a total of €200k to support international expansion. With the arrival of Keadyn, ABOSS on­boards the necessary knowledge and expertise to bring both the company and the product to the next level.

In the Netherlands ABOSS already gained the trust of Dutch artists like Armin van Buuren, Oliver Heldens and leading Dutch booking agencies such as David Lewis Productions, Hekwerk Theaterproducties and 010 Bookings. With Keadyn on board, ABOSS is expanding their business globally as they’ve now recognized that the problem they’re solving is universal and stretches across borders. ABOSS is already serving clients in the United States, Germany, Hong Kong, United Kingdom and Australia.

"Having worked in the music industry for many years 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."

Arvid Silos, Co-Founder ABOSS

"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 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."

Martijn Don, Partner at Keadyn

With co­investors such as Tom Holkenborg (a.k.a. Junkie XL), Fatih Kahyaoglu (former commercial director ID&T) ABOSS has won the hearts of many experts in the fields.
