A strong community – in all senses of the word – is a powerful thing. In today’s digital age it is also the first stepping stone into business for many creative and tech companies.
Join us for a panel discussion with NTS founder Femi Adeyemi and People of Print founder Marcroy Smith. Gain a unique insight into how they grew their creative communities – both on and offline – and what the idea of community means to them and their business models.
“NTS joins the dots between Rinse, Resonance and 6Music to provide a service that reflects the wide-ranging passions of its many, many presenters – and listeners. That’s the crucial thing about NTS – it is not a niche station, it’s a multi-niche station in that it gives voice to a dizzying array of passions and pressing issues” — DUMMY MAGAZINE
NTS is a family of like-minded, passionate individuals dedicated to supporting the growth of music by providing musicians and DJs with the facilities to nurture their talent, and a unique platform on which to showcase them.
Founded by Femi Adeyemi the idea was to create a local radio station for global audiences, bringing together a community of progressive, imaginative individuals and fervent music fans.
NTS Radio has fast established itself as an influential platform for new music and has built a respected roster of DJs and is one of the most listened to independent online radio stations in the world.
