Since middle school, Adams Fontin, Co-Founder of GoldPlay, has always been in love with music, technology and the products that materialize from both. As a teenager, his main hobby was creating mixtapes with the newest music for friends. He would come to find that this hobby would majorly impact his endeavors later in life.
Born in New York but raised in South Florida, he attended the University of South Florida in Tampa where he obtained a Bachelor’s degree in both Marketing and Finance. Soon after graduating, he returned to Miami and applied his knowledge in an aligning career. His search led him to become a high performing branch manager at Enterprise Holdings.
The success that he achieved in those 5 years as branch manager helped him realize that he had a bigger purpose in life, relating to his passion from childhood. With long-time friend, Zeferiah Gonzalez, he began to search for a way to bring back the feeling they had as children, when they found music on the Internet and shared it with their friends before anyone heard the music. Since then, the two partners created GoldPlay, an iOS app that allows users to stay up to date with the hottest trending music on the net from artists they know and love as well as ones they will love through discovery.
