A Message From Our Founder

I founded Rights Department after spending many years as an independent consultant, advisor, mentor, and business coach helping dozens of founders build, license, launch, and grow innovative businesses in the entertainment industry. Simultaneously, I did the same as a music industry entrepreneur who has earned three exits of my own and was recognized in Billboard magazine’s ‘ The 15 Best Music Business Schools in 2017 ’ for my class on music industry entrepreneurship at the University of California, Los Angeles (faculty profile).


Unlike some other business consulting firms, we do not engage every inquiry that comes our way. Just as we expect our prospects to vet us for our capabilities, we vet our prospects against our proprietary evaluation model for high-growth opportunities. And while we do not always get it right, we choose to work with founders who we believe we can help.


Since I began professionally consulting in 2005, at age 20, I have had the honor of spearheading or contributing to the launch or growth of businesses and tech startups from the United States, Europe, Middle East, Asia and Latin America. This experience has created a unique global perspective that we use as a competitive advantage in working with our clients.


We are boutique. We are passionate about innovation in the music industry. Our finger is on the pulse of what’s happening now and we are involved in what’s coming in the future. We only work with founders, teams, and businesses that we care about. We approach every opportunity with an open mind and compassion; and we apply over a decade of entrepreneurship experience, business management skills, and a broad network of music industry stakeholders to every case. And as a data-driven firm, we develop integrated business strategies with measurable results in mind.


I look forward to starting our engagement and client onboarding process with you and if we choose to work together, I also look forward to helping you reach your business objectives.

Kind Regards,







Dae Bogan, Founder & Executive Consultant
