Andrew Batey

Founder and Co-CEO, Beatdapp

Andrew Batey is an accomplished entertainment and technology entrepreneur and early adopter of major industry transformations across music, social media and web3. Over the last 15 years, The Peak’s 2023 Emerging Leader raised $100M+ for his own startups and filed 40+ patents across seven countries around artificial intelligence, machine learning, blockchain and data infrastructure. Now, as the Founder and Co-CEO of Beatdapp, his focus is on helping DSPs, music labels and artists combat artificial streaming fraud. Since inception, the company has been recognized as a Top 20 Music Company Globally by Crunchbase (Out of Top 10,000) and selected for "Emerging Rockets List" (2020 & 2021). The startup team has also graduated from accelerators such as Creative Destruction Labs, 500 Startups, Project Music and the highly prestigious and selective C100 “48Hrs in the Valley.”

In the early years, Batey spent time helping launch multiple top ten artists, lifestyle brands and growth hacking web properties such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube before they were the marketing tools we know today. Committed to staying close to the music business, he harnessed his creative side to release a song under the artist name Urban Outlaws, which wound up charting #4 on US country music singles and playlisted on Spotify’s Wild Country (April 2022). Away from work, he’s taught fourth-year advertising and marketing courses at multiple universities over eight years.
