Ian Hogarth

Co-founder and chief executive Songkick

Ian Hogarth is co-founder and chief executive of Songkick, the website and service that provides personalised news about live music events. Hogarth’s granddad was an inventor, his dad was an entrepreneur and for Hogarth, “those two things gave me the interest to create something.” Founded in 2007, Hogarth established Songkick with two friends in retaliation to the difficulty they faced in finding information about concerts. The company is one of the original tech startups in London’s Silicon Roundabout and has tie-ups with the likes of FourSquare, MTV and Spotify. It recently launched a new service, Detour, to help fans attract their favourite artists to their hometown through crowd funding. Hogarth won the British Council’s UK Young Music Entrepreneur competition in 2010.
