College creative network, Quadio, is a multi-faceted collective at the intersection of the arts, entertainment, and tech world. Quadio brings together college-level creatives by maintaining a finger on the pulse of current, cutting edge youth culture while also tapping leaders in the media and music industry. By-way-of their trademark social media app as well as virtual events, panels, and clubs, Quadio bridges the gap between what’s fan-facing and what happens behind-the-scenes by positioning education and community at the forefront for its 13K+ college creatives from more than 900+ schools across the country, and beyond. Notable users on the app include 24kGoldn, Ayoni, Tiffany Day, UMI, among others.
In the wake of the pandemic, which shut down both schools and live events, Quadio faced a brief dilemma. But this did not eliminate the fundamental problem Quadio was trying to solve - emerging artists' difficulty finding collaborators and fans, and their access to educational resources in an array of areas. Nor did it eliminate what the Quadio founders believed to be the solution to that problem: the power of community. With an unmatched business model and the determination to connect the dots for many who otherwise felt isolated during this unprecedented time, Quadio is set to wrap up the year on an incredibly high note.
On December 2nd, Quadio will host their heralded ‘Profesh Sesh’ - a series of conversations and Q&As with world-renowned music industry professionals and a rare chance to gather insight about the music industry straight from the source. As the final session of the year, it only made sense to invite Adam Alpert, CEO of Sony Entertainment’s Disruptor Records, who Quadio partnered with to create Quadio Records earlier this year, also manages The Chainsmokers, and was selected as one of Billboard's Power 100 list for 2017 and 2018. The event kicks off at 8PM ET and tickets are available for $10, here: quadio.com/
Hosted by Abir Hossain (VP of Quadio Records) via Zoom, Quadio’s past ‘Profesh Sesh’ guests include industry legends Wyclef Jean (rapper, musician, and producer) and Madeline Nelson (music industry executive, founder of HEADS Music, and Wyclef Jean's manager), as well as music industry titan and former EVP of A&R at Interscope Records, Dave Rene (Zedd, Kelsey Ly, Radian Children, Boylife, Lophiile) and founder of independent creative record label NO TRICKS.
