Kickstarter, the crowdfunding platform for creative projects, has acquired independent music streaming startup Drip and rescued it from shutting down one day before its scheduled closure. Drip was created as a way for musicians to build their community of fans. It was founded in 2012 by Ghostly International founder, Sam Valenti IV and partner Miguel Senquiz. Drip enables fans to directly support and connect with their favourite musician/creator. Members pay a fee, which goes directly to the artist. In return, the member gets exclusive access to the artist’s music, videos, writing and art. According to Kickstarter, the acquisition is just the beginning as the company vows to continue to serve creators, their communities and support creativity.
