Blimp Rock is a venture capital band founded for the purpose of raising $700K for a concert on a blimp floating above Lake Ontario.
On behalf of parent company Blimp Rock Enterprises, the band formed in 2012 with the intentions of raising the funds through selling albums and vintage office equipment such as rolodexes and floppy discs.
In 2015, Blimp Rock also sought revenue through a legal dispute with the Toronto Blue Jays.
Aware of the dangers blimps pose to birds, in 2016 Blimp Rock sought to give back to the ornithological community by donating their merch sales to build a blimp shaped bird house.
Despite all these efforts, Blimp Rock’s funding total currently sits at $ -2138. On the verge of financial ruin, the band/company has decided to rebrand in hopes of a clean start.
