DREAM PROJECT ­Contest Awards Top Prize to CUREative Content

(Nashville, TN) -September 13, 2013- This week's annual Leadership Music Summit brought together key players in the music industry and the start-up space under the theme "Digital Solutions Powered by The Entrepreneurial Spirit." Over 300 attendees were educated and engaged by some of the most forward-thinking business minds in entertainment. A keynote by StageIt Founder and CEO, Evan Lowenstein, tied together the theme of the Summit with the entrepreneurial spirit of an artist.

"We could not be more pleased with this year's event," said Heather McBee, "America's Morning Show" Operations Director and 2013 Leadership Music Summit Co-Chair. "The backgrounds of the attendees were as diverse as the panelists', and the feedback we have received has been fantastic."

A new addition at this year's Summit was the DREAM PROJECT contest. Finalists presented their big ideas to the judging panel and Summit attendees who voted for their favorities via Twitter. Leigh Fogle from CUREative Content was awarded top honors, coverage in Music Row and $1000 prize money. CUREative Content curates and aggregates art, music and education applications for healthcare facilities and delivers this content to their clients/patients through hospital provided tablets, flat screen televisions, and patients mobile devices.

Esteemed Nashville Mayor Karl Dean welcomed the attendees and touted various projects the city has championed to foster the entrepreneurial spirit. Former record company executive, Randy Goodman, delivered a presentation on the state of the music industry, the state of entrepreneur businesses and the Mayor's initiatives in these two areas for Music City.

Panels included "Bringing Content to Fruition," "How to Make Marketing Engaging," "Prioritizing Digital Needs & Solutions," and were highlighted by representatives from companies such as The Pavilion Group, Streamweaver, Populr.me, Mailchimp, DigSin, G7 Marketing, and more.

Details on the 2014 Leadership Music Summit will be released in the coming weeks.
