The entrepreneur used his background in the music business to launch an artist innovation company and a sparking wine label

Dave Airaudi (MBA’04) hasn’t had your typical MBA career. He entered the music business right after graduating, and eventually launched his own music startup called 3qtr. He caught the entrepreneurship bug, and a few years after that he launched a second business, this time a wine label, Sapere Aude Sparkling.

We sat down with Dave to talk about his unusual career and find out more about both of his companies. Among many other topics, he discusses working with major artists such as Pharrell and Kanye, as well as making his own rosé before it became such a trend.
