423PK Startup Fees
423PK was founded by David Ruiz (423BraggingRights) and Joel Ruiz (Evatt & Bloom) to culturally and economically enhance Chattanooga’s music scene. This campaign will pay for our startup and legal services (representation, including additional fundraising & PR) so we can start offering our services free of charge to local musicians.
We plan to affiliate ourselves with PUSHTOSTART, an all-inclusive legal organization with a focus in startup companies. With their help and our partnership with Lindsay Street Music Hall, we will begin to offer free profiles, photos, videos, and more to bands in Chattanooga, TN. Lindsay Street Music Hall’s 501c3 status allows 423PK to count all contributions to the project as tax-deductible donations, so together we can help grow the local music scene.
423PK & The Community
The campaign goal of $16,000 will fund our partnership with PUSHTOSTART (http://www.pushtostart.it/) to include all of our startup paperwork and contracts, as well as a year of legal services, i.e. business plan improvements, an advisory board, further fundraising, and business and legal strategy.
We have some amazing perks for all who donate. We’ll be offering digital photo downloads and prints from 423BR.com, albums and merchandise from Chattanooga musicians, local art, comedy show tickets, MES movie tickets, Pure Sodaworks soda, and much more! Not only will you help grow Chattanooga’s music and art scene, but you’ll also be privy to the best this city has to offer! During the month of March, we are putting on 4 live shows featuring some amazing local musicians. All proceeds from these shows will go toward the Indiegogo campaign.
If we don’t reach the full goal, we will still be putting the money towards the PUSHTOSTART startup fees, and donors will still receive givebacks.
As we move into the initial phases of the project we will continually assess new ways to promote the local music scene. Initially, we will offer live and promo photos, EPK videos, and profiles to all bands and/or musicians. The motivation behind bringing PUSTTOSTART on with us is for them to help us grow our impact in ways we can’t on our own. 423PK plans to offer vital services at no cost to local musicians, and that is what you’ll help us do if you donate to this campaign.
