LIVE NATION SELECTS WOMEN NATION FUND RECIPIENTS

Live Nation Entertainment has announced that its Women Nation Fund has selected three female-led businesses for its first round of funding. The three businesses selected for investment span different areas of the live music industry: touring, festivals and promotions.

The recipients are Tina Farris Tours, Conscious City Guide, and Kingdom of Mind.

Live Nation is working with each company to offer the appropriate resources, mentoring and support to help grow and develop the companies.  

“We started the Women Nation Fund to help expand the pool of female entrepreneurs in the live music space, and this first group of female founders we are investing in is incredibly impressive, diverse and ambitious,” said Michael Rapino, Live Nation President and CEO. “By backing these women, we hope to help them grow their companies in new directions and set the stage for even more women to lead the future of live.”

The first selection of entrepreneurs is an impressive group. 

Tina Farris Tours is a touring company founded by Tina Farris that handles tour management for an artist roster including The Roots, The Internet, Anderson .Paak, Lil Wayne, Black Eyed Peas and Chris Rock. Her company also co-produces Roots Picnic, Broccoli City and newcomer Queensfest.

Kingdom of Mind, founded by Isabella Kelly, is an event production and promotions business. Kelly’s past promotions work has focused on secondary/tertiary markets in California and will be expanding moving forward to the Pacific Northwest. Kelly has produced benefit concerts as well as events for universities and colleges.
