Conduit Labs is the largest provider of music games on the web, creating a new model for monetizing music and other media through fun social games.
Conduit Labs is the largest holder of music rights of any music games company, and driven to make the opportunity for music games even larger than the opportunity for music videos 20 years ago. We believe digital media will need to find ways to engage with users in deeper, more interactive, and lasting ways in order to flourish in the new media landscape.
The founders come from a background in web and gaming, being involved in the popular music games Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and in the pioneering massive multiplayer game Asheron's Call. They are backed by Charles River Ventures and Prism Ventures.
