Fangage is helping musicians and other creators to build communities of fans and find new ways to make money: from subscriptions, paid livestreams and sundry other features. It differentiates itself from the likes of Patreon and Onlyfans by giving creators full ownership of their audience data, the ability to use own domains, and charging much lower fees on transactions.
Co-founded by Dutch DJ Sam Feldt and CEO Nick Velten, the startup has just raised a €2m funding round to further develop its platform. River Venture Partners is happy to join other angels such as Jack Abraham (Atomic), Elena Silenok (Clothia), Paul Borrud (former MD Facebook Australia), Pandu Sjahrir (AC Ventures, Indonesia), Joost Diepenmaat & Edwin Vlieg (founders Moneybird) and Myles Shear (manager Kygo).
This round follows an initial crowdfunding campaign in 2019, raising €300k, which fuelled a relaunch in November 2020. Since then Fangage has signed up more than 1,750 creators to the platform.
