‘This is a new way’: How to launch your own radio station with $10,000 in seed funding
Posted January 13, 2018 09:03:31A startup called Xperience is hoping to give people a new outlet to listen to music in a way that’s free.
The company, based in Melbourne, Australia, is aiming to start with just a few hundred listeners and build out to thousands of listeners over time.
Xperience CEO and founder Adam Bensinger says the company’s goal is to make it possible for people to listen without any advertisements and without paying for the privilege.
“We want to make a world where anyone can have a voice without any money,” Bensingers said.
“If you’re not able to afford to get a subscription, you can still listen to the radio.”
In order to launch the service, Xperiance has secured funding from Australian company RTS Ventures.
It has raised $10 million from investors including Digital Media Capital, PwC, Accel Partners, and Accel.
To get to this point, Xpension is targeting a broad audience of listeners who want to listen and enjoy music.
“You can’t make music without paying,” Bening told News Corp Australia.
“So it’s a new, interesting way of getting a voice on the radio without having to spend money.””
Bensinger is also hoping that listeners will not have to pay to get the service to work. “

He says people can get in and listen without having an internet connection.
“They just have to download a software application,” he said.
“That’s how they get to the stations.”
In an interview with the ABC, Bensings company founder Adam said the idea is not to create a monopoly.
“This is really not an advertising company,” he explained.
“I don’t want to have to sell a subscription.
The company is working with artists to create music that will be available for free. “

The company has already produced songs for people who have paid $20 a month for the service.
“These songs will be for free, but you’ll also have to add a certain amount to your monthly subscription to use them,” he added.
The artist, who asked to remain anonymous, told News Net that Xperium has been a boon for her career.
“Music is a really exciting way to get into the world, especially in a digital space,” she said.
