Artists Ahead is a company that enables music rights holders to retain a greater proportion of the royalties generated by their music and protect their copyright. They argue that music royalties generate around £2 billion in revenue each year in the UK, but many artists receive a very small proportion of the income generated. Artists Ahead aims to change this and charge around 8% of royalties with the rest going to the artist. The platform collects both recording and publishing royalties, uses blockchain to provide proof of ownership, and holds all digital assets and royalty data in one place, accessible to the customer on any device. The company claims that its business model is transparent. They intend their business to reach maturity in 2025. It anticipates the purchase of its brand by potential buyers as a foreseeable exit plan. Artists Ahead also envisage an IPO permitting investors to trade their shares as another exit opportunity.

Fame Media Tech (FMN) is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) technology start-up that aims to transform the visitor, fan, and customer experience through technology-driven data perspectives.

FMN claims that companies can judge the above metrics through data diagrams on its portal as well. The company's early-stage proof of concept discussions extend across sport, hospitality, and visitor attractions such as Wembley Park and Bohemians FC. FMN's exit strategy would be via a trade sale to a media or technology business.
