OurStage Lands $13 Million for Online Talent Competitions - Boston, MA

OurStage, an online competition for aspiring musicians, filmmakers and comedians, has raised $13 million in new financing from over 100 angel investors, Tech Confidential reported. Boston-based OurStage's platforms let aspiring artists upload original music and videos, which the online community then votes on in the form of judging head-to-head battles. The site also sells music and other media, and offers prizes to contest winners such as opening slots for touring bands, or performances at festivals including Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival and Bumbershoot. OurStage recently signed a deal with AOL, which will promote contest winners on AOL Music.
