Live Nation has introduced am initiative to encourage female entrepreneurs in the music industry.

The Women Nation Fund is a early stage investment fund to provide access and capital for underrepresented women in concert promotion, events and festival spaces.

Live Nation CEO said in a statement, “As the leader in live entertainment, we want to meaningfully address this issue, change the dynamic and widen the playing field. The Women Nation Fund is a first step towards empowering new entrepreneurs and creating more opportunity for women in this sector of the live music business.”

“Women are underrepresented across the entertainment ecosystem, but we see this particularly in the music industry,” said Dr. Stacy Smith, the Founder and Director of the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative at the University of Southern California. “One crucial way to kick-start the effort towards gender parity is to fund female entrepreneurs. I applaud Live Nation for their leadership and for committing its resources in a way that can affect real change.”

Live Nation female executives championing the policy are Anna Sjolund (Co-Managing Director/Head Promoter, Live Nation Sweden), Amy Corbin (Promoter, C3), Virginia Davis (Founder, G Major Management), Amy Howe (COO, Ticketmaster), Lesley Olenik(VP, Touring), Maura Gibson (President, Front Gate Tickets), Kelly Chappel (VP, Touring) and Carrie Davis (Chief Communications Officer).

The fund will identify the pool of females in the music industry and give access to Live Nation resources such as strategic advisory, industry contacts and mentorship.
