New York City based tech startup Sparkplug, launched this year, is the first online community marketplace specifically for musicians and artists to share their creative tools and resources.
Known as the Airbnb of the instrument/gear rental world, Sparkplug’s mission is to connect musicians in an online community marketplace to efficiently and affordably share their creative tools through a secured network. Musicians can rent out their instruments, gear and space or rent from others. Sparkplug is perfect for touring and recording artists!
The company was founded by Julia Wilde, Charles Ridley, Jennifer Newman Sharpe, and Jonathan Eshak, and recent team additions include partner and strategic advisor Michael McDonald, Eshak’s colleague and founder of Mick Management (Ray LaMontagne, Passion Pit, Childish Gambino).
