Startime International is a record label founded in 2000 by Isaac Green, owned by Sony Music Entertainment, based in New York City, and distributed by Columbia Records. Its roster includes Foster the People, Coin, Natalie Prass, Bully, Made Violent, Lewis Del Mar, and The Big Moon.


Green moved to Brooklyn and out of his apartment started the label, armed with one band, the French Kicks. Startime's first release was the Kick's EP Young Lawyer in late 2000, and since then the label's roster has grown significantly with bands picked by Green not for their marketability but for sheer talent. This has paid off with a lot of indie cred points, and with more major labels looking to sign away Startime's acts like Brendan Benson and The Walkmen. A compilation of Startime acts has been released, Supercuts.
