SPOTIFY: The Pirates Who Saved / Killed Music (The Illegal Rise of Spotify) --- Welcome to the INSANE story of Spotify. We look at how Spotify nearly failed before it even launched, how Spotify got locked in an ongoing battle with both record labels and artists, and finally how Spotify regained leverage by changing their business model. Now, Spotify is actually quite a powerful force in the music industry with a lot more control, which means there are several controversial issues for us to look at in the Spotify Story - including Spotify's history with fake streams, and its plans to become a central hub for podcasts. Here on MagnatesMedia I bring you business stories. Today, we're looking at how Daniel Ek started Spotify, and what a huge impact Spotify has had.

He once managed to secure $45 billion worth of funding after a 45 minute meeting. He’s also responsible for the single greatest investment ever made. But on the other hand, many feel he’s simply a crazy gambler who treats the economy like a casino, and that he’s causing catastrophic damage to the economy. This is a man who once threatened to set himself on fire if he didn’t get a business deal. A man who has invested billions of dollars in entrepreneurs purely based on gut instinct or the sparkle in their eyes. And yet, I love him… You see, I’ve recently been making videos telling the stories of totally different businesses, like Uber, Yahoo, Tiktok - and yet Masa Son always seems to be connected. I feel like I’m in that movie where Jim Carey starts seeing the number 23 everywhere, but for me, all roads lead to the investor Masa Son. The majority of the world know extremely little about this man. But they should. He is quite literally changing the economy/world, and betting on our future. And his story is one of the most fascinating I’ve ever heard. It’s inspiring. It’s terrifying. And most of all, it’s absolutely INSANE... Welcome to the story of Masayoshi Son (The Masa Son Documentary). Whether you're an entrepreneur, investor or just someone who enjoys crazy business & finance stories / making money, you're going to love Masayoshi Son's biography. We explore some of his investments, businesses, and investing philosophy.

There is something particularly evocative about a documentary. 

Seeing real people tackle some of the most stomach turning challenges life has; watching them wrestle with conflict, both outward and inward and finally seeing the victory and the sacrifices that came with it. 

In making a doc, we often see the project spanning months, even years of our lives. Their victories begin to become our victories, their struggles become ours. It's physically and emotionally taxing work, but the way we see it, in years to come, when our hands are too frail to hold a camera, the friends and stories we made through these documentaries will be the fire that warms our twilight years.

Much to our partners dismay, we also have a habit of creating short films for ourselves on our days off. You can see these monstrosities below or on our Youtube channel (@foleyandthechamp)
