ScoreMore Shows’ Sascha Stone Guttfreund and Claire Bogle have reportedly grown annual revenues to more than $4 million since launching in 2010. The company, started by the duo while they were still students, specializes in hip-hop and electronic acts and is partnering with C3 Presents on several Austin-area events.

Recent shows include Tyler The Creator, Yelawolf , Earl Sweatshirt and Ludacris & Girl Talk at various Texas venues. It’s branched out to 11 college markets including Austin, Dallas, Houston, College Station, and San Antonio in Texas, Oklahoma City, Little Rock, Ark., Nashville, Bloomington, Ind., and Ann Arbor and Champaign in Michigan.

Bogle told the Austin Business Journal the pair is fielding lots of calls regarding potential partnerships but said they’re not looking to sell at this point.

“We’re open to any and all communication and we’ve had some interest from people who have been our heroes and mentors,” Bogle said. “Right now we’re seeing what’s the best fit and if someone is coming to us at the right time with the right idea.”
