Music Tech Europe Academy seeks talented startups and founders


A new program being launched out of the European Commission’s Music Moves Europe framework is looking for talented music/tech startups across the continent. It’s called Music Tech Europe Academy, and launched yesterday.

“A new, hybrid and scalable training scheme for music-tech innovators, entrepreneurs, startups and SMEs across Europe,” as its website puts it.

Music Innovation Hub in Italy and Media Deals in Germany are coordinating the program, which is setting its sights on startups working in areas including AI, VR, AR, 3D audio, big data, blockchain and machine learning.

10 startups and founders will be chosen for the seven-month program, with an emphasis on mentoring, and ultimately on pitching to investors. Music Ally’s very own Marlen Hüllbrock will be a member of the jury judging startups, with applications open until 15 March.
