David Geertz

Founding Partner/CEO,
Hall Pass
Vancouver, BC, Canada
David Geertz lives at the intersection of business and technology within the film and music business and has done so for 25 years. While others focus on developing artists, David works on building programs and solutions that deal with systemic challenges, that artists, brands and fans face on an ongoing basis.

David has expert knowledge in entertainment finance and investing, including building and implementing some of the earliest iterations of crowdfunding and micro-finance models, as well as co-operative models for venues allowing communities to manage their own venues and increase revenues to artists.

His current program that is just launching is called Hall Pass, a sustainable touring solution for bands that want to tour across Canada and make a living wage without going into debt.
