Rapid Fire – Wednesday, April 23

Springwise newsletter | 23 April 2008

“Last week Tennent’s Lager launched Tennent’s Mutual, a new music venture that will ultimately result in a live music festival this fall in which fans select artists, debate locations for gigs and call the shots on ticket prices. To kick off the effort, Tennent’s created a start-up fund of GBP 150,000. Fans who sign up before June 30th will be given founder member status and the right to vote on the “who, what, why, where?” of all decisions as to how that start-up money is invested.”
