August is a mobile-first platform that brings what artists and consumers truly value into one place. In addition to a wide variety of tools, artists have a home that unifies and amplifies their relationships with consumers, leading to more authentic connections, media monetization, and, ultimately, freedom to continuously create more media. In the same degree, consumers see August as a new media experience, attracted to a media-centric community inhabited by their favorite artists (from virtually unknown talent to mainstream). Consumers discover, bind and financially support artists while exploring August's simple and attractive interface and features, including the ability to purchase products directly from the artist (digital media, tickets, and tailored experiences). It places much-needed content power into the hands of artists, leading to disruptive opportunities in the world of online media discovery and distribution.
