Your Music Company is the first-ever, state-licensed crowdfunding music business model in the United States that pays fans royalties as a reward for crowdfunding their album production

Los Angeles, CA –  For the first time ever on U.S. soil, “fanvestors” will earn royalties from their investment in French artist Georgia Jane’s music crowdfunding campaign listed on Your Music Company (YMC). Those who supported Georgia Jane will collectively receive 5% of their total investment in the form of a check or an account credit on YMC’s website.

Primed to turn the music industry and U.S. based crowdfunding upside down with their unique approach, YMC is the first state-licensed music platform to employ the crowdsourcing model and allow fans an opportunity like no other — to support their favorite independent musicians on YMC’s website and profit-share in the sale of the artists’ online music downloads rather than receive prize incentives, as most fundraising sites generally operate. Though this business model is still in its infancy in the U.S., a similar site exists in Europe and has helped fund the careers of successful artists overseas.

“We are excited to share this success with Georgia’s fanvestors,” said Christel Gidouin, co-founder of YMC. “Their continued support is vital to the success of this platform and we look forward to launching the careers of talented musicians in America.”

Independent pop songstress Georgia Jane is the company’s first major success, with her campaign reaching its intended goal of $100,000. From her initial funding, Georgia was able to record her debut single, “Do The Same For Me,” and will use the remaining funds to produce her full-length album. Thanks to Georgia’s fanvestors, her single placed #93 on Mediabase’s Top 40 Pop chart and reached #5 on their Top 40 Pop Independent Label/Artist chart. Additionally, her single hit #40 on the BDS Top 40 Indicator Chart.

Fanvestors, or fan investors, collectively split 25% of all net profits from album and single sales. Using social media as the basis for promotion, fanvestors have the opportunity to support and share the music they like and receive royalties, while the artist raises the funds they estimate to record an album. If the campaign goal is not reached, fanvestors receive their initial investment back.

In 2011, renowned French singer/songwriter Yael Benamour teamed up with COO Christel Gidouin to bring their updated platform to the American market, selling off all of their possessions and moving to Los Angeles before receiving approval of their U.S. visas. Armed only with a business plan and their plane tickets, the two female entrepreneurs raised $1.2m in seed funding and opened an office in Century City, where they maintain their hands-on approach to developing the careers of each of YMC’s successfully funded artists.

This revolutionary platform allows fans worldwide to select an artist from the record label’s roster and invest in him/her. The music fan, referred to as “FANVESTOR,” will in turn receive royalties from the artist’s album and single sales. Your Music Company is continuing their worldwide growth in over 100 countries.

Body Boxing Bootcamp Launches Indiegogo Fitness Crowdfunding Campaign to Finance their State-of-the-Art Boot Camp Workout Center for Clients and Personal Trainers in Los Angeles

BBB is offering boxing boot camp personal trainer perks, fitness boot camp gift cards and workout center pre-orders to donors living in Bel Air, Beverly Hills, Park La Brea, West Beverly, West Hollywood, West Los Angeles and Wilshire

Body Boxing Bootcamp launched a community internet-based fundraising campaign on indiegogo’s crowdfunding platform to help raise money to open a new fitness boot camp workout center located in Los Angeles just west of Hollywood, California.

Crowdfunding is a new way for local community members to pool their money together in order to help local entrepreneurs launch businesses customers would like to see introduced into their cities and towns based on their own personal desire to buy or use the product or service.

For example, there are plenty of traditional gyms in the Hollywood area, but none of them feature the mixture of boxing workout techniques combined with dancing, Thai kickboxing, resistance training (rubber bands and light weight lifting), plyometrics (jumping and quick movement drills), calisthenics (using one’s own body weight), obstacle courses, circuit training, and parachute running.

Customers that would like see the new workout facility open up can log on to and donate money by pre-ordering boot camp training workouts, buying fitness gift cards for friends or purchasing one or signing up to become a personal trainer at:

In return for a donation, BBB is offering to train anyone that wants to learn how to become a personal trainer and is offering a white paper, DVD, Smartphone wireless app, business plan template and all the necessary equipment to get into the personal trainer boot camp business.

Body Boxing Bootcamp fitness  workouts target:

  1. Young singles seeking active lifestyles;
  2. Baby boomers preventing the onset of old age;
  3. Overweight kids seeking to gain a better self image and self-defense skills;
  4. Celebrities, movie stars, rock stars who prefer private workouts when visiting Hollywood; and
  5. Anyone that wants to lose weight and get into an active routine that is fun and burns lots of calories.

“Both private personal training and group workout sessions will be offered, but the majority of the boxing boot camps will be done in groups of ten to twenty people,” said Kevin Barringer, Body Boxing Bootcamp’s CEO and head personal trainer.  “When people workout together, over time they become friends. And most friends are competitive and like to push each other to work harder.  This is the secret sauce that makes our classes fun and keeps our clients coming back for more.”

Body Boxing Bootcamp (BBB) needs $375,000 to lease retail space, renovate it and build a specially formatted workout center that will provide plenty of space for indoor workouts that are similar to the outdoor classes that the company offers on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at the nearby Pan Pacific Park.

In addition to its own fitness boxing boot camps, BBB plans to rent out space in the gym to other personal trainers and Meetup boot camp organizers.
