Deezer celebrates first UK anniversary with a promise: we’re not going to the US10 Oct, 2012
Deezer is celebrating its first UK anniversary today, with a livecast of CEO Axel Dauchez. Deezer is fresh off a new investment round of 100 M € by billionnaire Len Blavatnik (75 M as new financing, 25 M to buy out previous investors).
Dauchez made a promise ‘that would make Deezer users in 160 countries happy’: while Spotify is trying to get a firm footing in the US, Deezer is trying to grow outside the US.
“Deezer CEO Axel Dauchez: We are not going to the US. One day, but not now. The market is not ready.”#DeezerGlobal

Whiteboard will have an in depth interview with Guillaume Lautour of early Deezer investor IDInvest very soon, in which he speaks about his investment in Deezer, of which he is obviously very proud – and in which he points out that while “other services” are losing money, Deezer has always been profitable. (Spotify reportely lost 59 M $ on $244 million in revenue).
