Scott Kelly, CEO of BDVP commented on the investment, “I had the opportunity to meet Jamari McNabb (a UCF graduate) when he presented at our last VC Fast Pitch event at Catapult in Lakeland. The platform that Noted has built is a perfect complement to our influencer agency and music tech portfolio companies. We are excited to help creators in Florida and the world succeed and with Noted they will!”

 Jamari McNabb, Noted Media founder added, “Each of us absorbs content daily by way of music, photo, or video. Our team feels that creators who work endlessly to provide us with the content that we’ve gotten so accustomed to seeing do not get the proper recognition they deserve. Our team designed Noted to be a platform exclusively for creatives to search, collaborate and create. Creatives deserve their own streamlined resource that makes their creative process a little less challenging. Noted is a digital middleman – but Scott is a real-life middleman. With his passion and vast experience in the music space, the synergy was there between him and our team from the very beginning. The partnership made complete sense in every way and we are excited to see how far we take things together.”
