I remember when I met Alex Morrisey at a Kingston BETA event and I was encouraging him to pitch a startup business idea soon. He smiled and said I will have something to talk about soon. That he did. He had already launched JamaicansMusic.com and was taking it to another level before shouting it to the world. When he was in the throws of making his brand visible and remarkable he pitched it at Kingston BETA and shared his story of why, how and what it took and where he’s going.
He’s taken Jamaican music and culture to the world…using the Web. His story told to members of the Kingston BETA community, shared on SiliconCaribe.tv, written on by Jamaican mainstream media is now beind told on SocialMediaExaminer.com- a hugely popular online magazine that helps businesses answer social media questions with useful how to articles, in-depth case studies, expert interviews, and original research.
