Maverick CEO Guy Oseary has invested in a number of music-related startups through his A-Grade Investments firm, including Spotify, SoundCloud and Shazam. His latest investment is in a personal capacity though: in Indian streaming service Saavn for an undisclosed amount. “Many artists would love for their music to reach India’s over one billion residents. From the time I’ve been in the music business, that process has always been too complicated; now, through Saavn, it is finally possible to have a true local partner in India that gets it, and will work hand-in-hand with artists and their managers,” said Oseary in a statement. Saavn CEO Rishi Malhotra told TechCrunch a bit more about the plans. “We’re building original programming for Saavn, now we’ll be developing unique content with artists. I can’t say exactly what the format will be right now, but it will developed exclusively or with an exclusive window,” he said.
