Founder Story 📚:

Uni was our hope when there was none. In the middle of COVID 2020, my partner and I were just two musicians from NC living out of our car in LA with a dream to be more. Out of passion for music and a distaste for the current music industry, Uni was born as a rebellion against a timeless stigma, ‘the starving artist.’. We believe that artists, musicians specifically, shouldn’t have to struggle to make a living. In fact, they should be compensated appropriately for the position that is theirs, cultural leaders!”

The Uni team is seeking strategic partners. If their mission resonates, we encourage you to reach out.

Request for Help 👋🏼:

  • Chris Cownden: “I have started a new role, and it’s my first sales role. I’m a complete novice and out of my depth but working with a supportive team who are patient and want to help me succeed in my role. What advice do you have or resources you recommend I look at to put me in the best direction? I’m feeling way out of my depth, but I know in order to be better, I need challenges like this. Thanks in advance.” You can send Chris a message here.

Helpful Opportunities / Resources 💫:

  • Jeffrey Biles: “ I bought a huge house in round rock, and I have a couple of bedrooms to fill. Preferably with other ambitious people. We have lots of common areas, two fridges (prevent 90% of roommate fights), a dedicated coffee area, a nice weight set in the garage, and bedrooms big enough that you can set up a little home office and a queen-sized bed.” If you’d like more information, you can send Jeffrey a message here.
