This nostalgic startup is establishing a crowdfunding model for cassette tapes. Following what they did for vinyl records, QRATES is launching a new venture with QASSETTES. Described as "the world's first crowdfunding platform for the cassette industry," QASSETTES is throwing it back, old school style, with a love for 1990s music mediums.

Anyone can use the cassette tapes platform to link to or upload their own music or audio and then design their own cassettes. From there, the platform also hosts funding and pre-orders. They handle shipping to your fans around the world as well. So if you are a bit hipster and only want to release retro tapes, you can now do so with the help of QASSETTES.
