Work

Tipping Point is not a typical venture firm or incubator. Instead, we craft partnerships with entrepreneurs specific to their needs and resources. In that sense, you can think of us more as as institutional co-founder rather than an investor or service provider.

To that end, we look to partner with driven and experienced entrepreneurs creating innovative products and significant value.

Haystack.com (2004-2008) was an ad-supported music social network built on, at the time, one of the largest online libraries of legal, on-demand streaming music and music video. Haystack connected passionate music fans to music through trusted sources and Tastemakers. The company facilitated the creation and syndication of personalized, branded music channels (playlists). Haystack offered artists and copyright holders a share of its advertising revenues that radio, TV and online properties did not, making them one of the first companies to address the issue of compensating content creators for streaming media.The Former Haystack.com
