TREBEL launched in late 2018 driven by a mission to make an exceptional music listening experience available to billions of people worldwide. Users were overwhelmingly drawn to our service, confirming our belief that socioeconomic factors such as income and credit card access make paid streaming services inaccessible to a majority of people around the world.
Today, nearly 90% of the world’s 3.5 billion smartphone users do not pay for music. As global smartphone usage grows, we believe the next big opportunity within the music industry will come from improving the experience and monetization of these billions of music listeners.
With TREBEL, we have partnered with major brands and global music and media companies to create the first licensed music service that delivers on-demand and offline song play at no cost to the user. In other words, we make the most essential paid features of a subscription service available to the largest audience possible, for free.
We brought together industry experts, technologists, and entrepreneurs with four successful exits to build a company that is solving one of the music industry’s biggest problems.
