Music WorX 2021: application phase started

Music WorX is entering a new round. As usual this year we are looking for innovative business models at the interface between music and technology.
What's New: the former accelerator becomes an incubator.

Big data, blockchain and AI - technological progress is driving the music industry to constantly reinvent itself. Music WorX is a funding program for startups and founders from the music industry. We provide start-up support for business ideas that support the music industry as it moves into the digital future.

Four teams, three months

Up to four teams from the fields of music & tech are funded. The program extends over three months and will take place remotely and (if possible) with team meetings in Hamburg. Depending on the composition of the teams, we hold the workshops and coaching in English.

The incubator for the music industry

With the switch from accelerator to incubator, the Hamburg Kreativ Gesellschaft specifically promotes music startups that are about to or immediately after the company is founded. Another focus of the incubator is the focus on the early phase of brainstorming. Experienced mentors from the music and technology industry support the teams in further developing their business ideas through individual training sessions and close, personal advice.

Participants receive:

  • 5,000 euros for supporting services for the (further) development of the business ideae
  • 1,500 euros per team per month as a living allowance 
  • an individual qualification program
  • Targeted networking opportunities with Hamburg music companies and relevant industry representatives
  • an accreditation for the Reeperbahn Festival Conference
  • flexible coworking workplaces in Hamburg if required
  • the opportunity to win a prize money of 5000 euros at the final Music WorX Pitch

Music WorX is a publicly funded incubator. The founders therefore do not give us any shares in their company.
