A Mission To Disrupt Apple, Spotify and Amazon in Digital Content
Digital content providers have always struggled to be paid for the fair value of what they produce.
When the Internet disrupted the old media paradigm, it was the tech companies that won, building their platforms with free content from consumers and media professionals alike.
Now all that is beginning to change.
Today we meet an entrepreneur with a mission to transform the digital economy to a new and more equitable model for artists, creators, and consumers.
Stephanie Scapa is the Co-Founder & CEO of WEYV, an ad-free subscription platform that allows users to listen to music, read magazines and listen to podcasts all in a single app experience.
WEYV has been built on a patented digital content licensing model where content providers are fairly compensated in proportion to the amount of time their content is accessed – a unique model for content providers to monetize their intellectual property.
Learn on today’s Wings:
- How WEYV works and how it could benefit podcasters and other content providers
- What it’s like to innovate as an “intrapreneur” within a larger corporation (especially when that corporation was founded by your Dad)
- How to maintain a “scrappy startup culture” within a big company
- How to beat perfectionism
- Why supporting women and girls in STEM is critical and what it takes to succeed as an engineer
- How female-led management teams differ from those run by men
- And much more

More about Stephanie:
She started out as an engineer coding at Cisco before joining the family fold at Altair, the software company founded and bootstrapped by her Dad. Now Vice President of Corporate Development at Altair, Stephanie has led the development of WEYV using a business model similar to something already proven at Altair in a different space.
Stephanie is also a philanthropist having founded Tech Treehouse in 2016, a Metro Detroit-based non-profit providing after-school STEM activities to children.
