More than 40 student-run record labels operate today at universities and colleges in the US and abroad.  These labels provide students with valuable hands-on experience, and provide up-and-coming artists with a launch pad and the opportunity to begin transitioning from amateur to professional. This session will explore their operating models, their successes and challenges, and ways for them to better engage with independent and major labels in terms of artist and staff development.
