With his €1.2bn exit of Club Internet to T-Mobile in 2001, Fabrice Sergent is the community’s original sugar daddy. After, as he put it, making his first money importing US technology into Europe, he decided to switch the model on its head 10 years ago and setup shop in NYC to export French mobile savoir-faire in the US through his Cellfish Media holding, which focuses on serving music and sports fans. In September, the company regrouped all of its activities under the Bandsintown brand – the name of their well-known concert discovery app, which boasts 12 million users and is adding about 450,000 new users per month, on top of an ad network that reaches 120m music fans worldwide.
