Georgia State alumni of the undergraduate Minor in Entrepreneurship program, and current Robinson College of Business MBA student, Robert Hatcher, was one of the few to place in the Global Pitch Competition, hosted by the Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization (CEO) in Tampa, Florida. The competition bolstered over 150 applications and had nearly 1,000 people in attendance.
The competition is comprised of three rounds, and Robert was amongst the six finalists who advanced and were selected to participate in the last round of the competition. The top three winners were announced during the closing session, with Robert taking home third place for his startup idea of Soundcollide.
Soundcollide is an online recording studio that allows users to discover new artists, record, and collaborate live remotely from two different locations. With the discovery feature, users can find music and artists that fit their next song idea. With the recording feature, users can collaborate remotely no matter their location, eliminating time-consuming communication or travel between artists. Lastly, Soundcollide offers the potential for its users to make money, giving the option for artists to charge for any services in the music production process.
Currently, Soundcollide is in the process of developing a prototype and technology to finish building the product so that it may be brought to market.
