WHAT WE HAVE DONE

The non-profit, founded by artist manager Stephanie LaFera (Founder and CEO Little Empire Music) and music executive Kerri Mason (Senior Vice President SFX), aims to light a path to success for aspiring female entrepreneurs and businesswomen in electronic dance music.

SkyLight provided travel and accommodations to EDMBiz in Las Vegas for the inaugural recipients of the SkyLight Grant, who were selected based on essay submissions detailing their businesses and goals. Once there, they were matched with mentors in their field, feted as the guests of honor at an influencer-packed cocktail hour, and brought to the podium of EDMBiz, the two-day business conference hosted by Insomniac Events.

“Being a 23-year-old entrepreneur trying to create my own success in the dance music realm, and about to speak on a panel at a conference revolving around my sole passion,” said grant recipient Alexa Ahrem of Philadelphia-based promotion company East Side Electro. “I really can’t even put into words how I felt about it.”

INTERNSHIP PLACEMENT PROGRAM

The SkyLight Internship Program sought to place qualified and hand-selected interns in high-performing companies in the music industry. The program’s goal was to provide our interns with meaningful work experience and valuable exposure to the inner workings of a successful organization, while also benefitting the host partner.
