Encore is an interactive live music app that brings together artists and fans through new mobile experiences. We’re a content creation platform featuring emerging, mixed reality technologies that empower artists to directly engage and monetize their fanbase through short-form live experiences.
Co-founded and led by award-winning rapper Kid Cudi, Hollywood veteran Ian Edelman, and CEO Jon Gray, our diverse team is comprised of innovators at the intersection of music and technology, with backgrounds in AR, gaming, entertainment, social and mobile.
We’re purpose-built for artists, with a tech stack that includes iOS (Swift), Unity 3D (C#), React Native, and NodeJS in conjunction with premium, ultra-low latency streaming and future-facing AR/VR.
Global Investment fund Battery Ventures led our Seed round in August 2020, and we confidentially just closed our Series A.
