Get started with music

Music WorX is Europe's first publicly funded incubator for startups in the music & tech sector. We offer effective start-up assistance and sustainable networking for talented founders from the music industry.

    Get started with music

    Technological progress such as big data, blockchain, and AI is driving the music industry to constantly reinvent itself. Music WorX is a public funding programme for start-ups from the music and tech industry. We support business ideas and inventors who we think will introduce the next generation of technologies into the music business. 

    The Incubation Programme

    Within three months, up to four teams receive financial support and individual trainings tailored to the precise development needs of their business. What is key: Music WorX focuses on the early stages of the idea generation process. We support each team in fine-tuning their ideas and make them ready for business. The teams also receive a financial grant.

    Access to industry and expertise

    Music WorX is organised by the public sector but cooperates very closely with a large number of companies from the local music industry. We connect founders and their teams with key people of influence in the industry to inspire, guide and facilitate. Mentors will deliver workshops, one-on-one coaching and advisory sessions as well as business development introductions and more.
