RIDGEFIELD, Conn., Aug. 22, 2018 – Sound Affects, a first-of-its-kind charitable crowdfunding platform for cancer innovations (, announces strategic partnership with Vevo, the world’s leading music video and entertainment platform.

“A major challenge facing any crowdfunding platform is that of cultivating the crowd that cares. This is particularly challenging for Sound Affects because the public is largely unfamiliar with the role of biotech innovations in advancing cancer cures to market,” says Sound Affects’ Founder and Director, Dr. Mona Jhaveri.

Sound Affects wants to change this by creating outreach mechanisms, where the potential of biotech innovation for helping win the war on cancer is shared across popular culture platforms, making this a common concern versus one for scientists or business people only. “Key to moving forward is our partnership with Vevo,” Jhaveri states.

Capitalizing on the partnership, Sound Affects will launch its video series “Music Beats Cancer.” Videos will highlight a partnered artist – their music, their story and why they align with Sound Affects. In doing so, Sound Affects will help shape a new discussion around cancer innovation as an access to winning the war on cancer.
