About Music WorX
Music WorX is an incubation programme for start-ups from the music and tech industry. We support the next generation of music entrepreneurs who experiment with emerging technology and impactful applications. We incubate up to four teams who have not yet or just recently founded their company. Over the course of three months, you will develop your business idea with the help of experts and mentors from the music industry and start-up ecosystem. The programme will take place remote and (if possible) with meetings of the teams in the city of Hamburg. Depending on the composition of the teams, we will hold the workshops and coaching sessions in English.
No selling of shares: Music WorX is a publicly funded. Therefore, you do not give any shares of your company to us.
Who can apply?
Music is universal, and so is music tech innovation – we want to support businesses from all over Europe. For example:
- New services from direct-to-fan marketing (D2F)
- Licensing models
- Business models based on blockchain
- Tools to analyse music data
- and much more
Who sits in the jury?
Music WorX is supported by an advisory board consisting of representatives with leading expertise in the music business. The advisory board members also sit on the Music WorX jury who will meet on 16 June 2021 and appove all prospective participants.
After the programme
Hamburg has a lively music scene and numerous offers for follow-up funding. There are many good reasons to have your company's headquarter remain in the city, once the incubation programme is over. Of course, this is not mandatory. But we truely hope that relevant business relationships will be maintained and expanded.
