JustGo’s team brings a wealth of experience to the table from prior careers at companies such as Beatport, Timeout, Shazam, Nokia Music and Spotify.
New Chairman, Tempel, explained his reasons for geang behind the project, “What I saw in JustGo was the ability to optimize and significantly improve the workflow of content creators like myself who are now managing their careers and livelihoods on a daily basis across an expanding array of social publishing plaIorms. In my mind, the power of JustGo and its utility cannot be underestimated as both a solution and a true aggregator in helping a new world of digital creators harness the power of digital content and social audiences.”
“The idea for JustGo came about two years ago while I was studying music production and sound engineering in Point Blank Music College in London. I was a bedroom DJ/producer hobbyist working a full-time job and realized how tough it must be for other emerging creators to promote themselves online. I wanted to create a new plaIorm that would help these creators connect with and grow their digital audiences in one simple to use interface.” said JustGo’s Founder and CEO, Justin Golshir.
