Event tech company Eventnoire has announced the addition of music and entertainment mogul John Monopoly to its advisory board. Monopoly is best known for discovering and managing Kanye West, as well as designers Virgil Abloh and Don C, who calls Monopoly "a cultural genius."
Monopoly has worked in the music industry since he started promoting shows in Chicago at 13 years-old. In the years since, he has held multiple positions at Violator and Jive Records and been on the management teams of artists such as Busta Rhymes and Missy Elliott.
"Their management and back of the house is comprised of some highly educated entrepreneurs from my hometown of Chicago. I'm always looking to align myself with the next greats out of the city from an executive talent standpoint and an artist talent standpoint," says Monopoly. He adds, "I think I bring a lot of connectivity from not just artist relationships, but with executives and promoters and event planners all over the world."
