17% of VC-backed startups have at least one woman as a founder

A study conducted by CrunchBase has found that only 17% of startups receiving their initial round of venture funding in 2017 had at least one woman as a founder.
What’s more, that percentage has stayed static since 2012, having risen steadily in the three years before that.
In 2017, all-women teams accounted for 3% of all VC funding – around $3.8bn – while men-only teams accounted for 86% of it, and mixed teams 11%.

Finnish band Phantom launch VR video using Notch technology

Finnish electronic duo Phantom have become the first artist to use new technology from Notch, which is best known for its software providing live visuals for a host of big acts.
Its new tool aims to help artists create virtual-reality videos based on the music itself.
“The interactive music video visualises sound in VR. It uses sound to animate, with drum, bass and vocals separated to drive different visuals. Users are surrounded by the music and truly immersed in the experience,” as the company explained it in a press release.

Transparency remains a big challenge for the music industry in 2018, according to Gregor Pryor, co-chair of law firm ReedSmith’s global Entertainment and Media Industry Group.
“As ever, the challenge with distribution is data hygiene. Getting composers and creators focused on all of the supply chain is a difficult thing to do,” he said in an interview for the NY:LON Connect conference blog.
