Budi Voogt – How to Crush Music Marketing (and Life)

If there’s one person I have immense respect for, it’s Budi Voogt. He’s the smartest, most driven person I know.

He’s the co-founder of Heroic, a label and management agency. Instructor of the Music Marketing Academy, and author of The Soundcloud Bible. He’s taken guys like WRLD and San Holo to a new level through his management expertise, and helped empower many more creators, which is at the heart of his vision and mission as an entrepreneur.
