Music software maker BandLab – now part of Caldecott Music Group, of course – has announced $65 million of new funding, bringing on board new investor Prosus Ventures as part of the round. “Prosus Ventures has a record of highly successful investments in some of the world’s most groundbreaking companies, and we’re THRILLED they see the merits of our vision”, says BandLab CEO Meng Ru Kuok. “We’re proud to be a leading company in the music creation category and couldn’t be happier to have them join us in empowering the future of music”.
