Who is CitizenGroove?

CitizenGroove Inc (Cleveland, OH) is a SaaS platform designed to streamline the multimedia intensive recruitment process at music, film, and visual art institutions.  The majority of our clients have been collegiate music programs, which have three primary concerns:

  1. Recruiting a higher number and quality of prospective students
  2. Staying connected with alumni who enhance your institution's name recognition
  3. Making your current students more entrepreneurial

School administrators can use our platform to screen a wider pool of international talent and ultimate recruit more efficiency.

We’re a young, energetic, and fast-paced company.  As graduates of a collegiate music program, the CG founders know that music programs are not keeping up with today's technology.  Rather than sitting back and complaining, we decided to take action.  The CitizenGroove team is a unique blend of musicians and software engineers.  Our progress to-date includes:

  • Commercial product released in August 2010
  • 7 university clients (growing quickly) signed-up in first 2 months
  • Closed a Series A round venture financing
