The aim is to help the live music business get back on its feet and create fair working conditions.
At connactz, everything revolves around the management of musicians - in this case with the help of artificial intelligence. The team from Bavaria wants to give all music creators the opportunity to hand over all the time-consuming bureaucratic tasks to the tool they have developed. For example, new concert opportunities are researched, the tour calendar is updated and contracts are drawn up - all based on previous experience and fully automatically. This should give musicians time to concentrate on what's important: the music.

By bundling the research and idea generation processes on one platform, collaboration is facilitated and the quality of the songs themselves is improved.
