LAist Interview: Joe Glaser, Co-Founder of Moontoast
Last month we had a ton of LAist folks at SXSW-interactive and via the grapevine we got hooked up with Joe Glaser, co-founder of Moontoast, direct from Austin.Moontoast is an online collection of experts who can provide instruction and face-to-face consulting via the webcams built into most computers these days. Glaser was initially inspired by his relationships with professional musicians, several of them LA-based, who in between recording sessions and touring, were looking to connect with people interested in learning but might be remotely located.
Glaser and his team saw beyond the music instruction category and realized that by opening up the platform to all experts they had the opportunity to create a much larger community. With West Coast investors like Wynona Judd, Vince Gill, Amy Grant and Kip Winger behind them, Glaser and his developers were able to launch their platform at SXSW's Accelerator event in mid-March.
