We’ve written regularly about music/tech accelerators and incubators like Techstars Music, Abbey Road Red and Marathon Artists Labs. Another one that’s well regarded is Music WorX in Hamburg, run by the publicly-funded Hamburg Kreativ Gesellschaft body.
It’s kicking off a new cohort for 2020, with a three-month program for “teams who have not yet or only recently founded their company”.
There’ll be up to four teams participating in the program, which will provide €5k to help them develop their business idea plus another €1.5k per team per month towards living costs. The publicly-funded nature of the accelerator means it does not take equity.
Depending on the status of the Covid-19 lockdown in Hamburg, the accelerator will use a mixture of in-person and remote sessions. The deadline for applications is 13 July.
Music Ally’s next Learn Live webinar will help you build the strategies for artists to thrive in new international markets!
