Heya! I'm Budi.

Over the past decade I've scaled businesses in the music industry, as an artist manager (of San Holo, among others) and CEO of labels Heroic and bitbird. I also founded music industry job board MusicCareers and educational platform Heroic Academy. I exited these in 2022 to pursue new goals.

I now run Striking Markets, a fund, investment syndicate and advisory that invests and partners with innovative early-stage technology companies.

I'm also learning how to code (JS, SvelteKit, "Serverless") so that I can be a more technical founder for whatever business I start in the future.
