Open call: Music WorX Accelerator 2020

Locked concert halls, canceled festivals, deserted dance floors - the corona crisis shakes the (live) music. Alternative revenue and business models are needed. Do you have a business idea that can help the music industry take a step into a digital future? Apply now for the Music WorX Accelerator and take your business model to the next level! Of course, other innovative concepts are welcome as well!

The accelerator for the music industry

With the Music WorX Accelerator we support founders from the music industry who want to realize their start-up in Hamburg. This year we are especially looking for teams who have not yet or only recently founded their company. In a condensed, three-month program the participants develop their business idea further - supported by experts and mentors from the Hamburg music industry. Every year we sponsor up to four teams from Hamburg, Germany and all over Europe.

What's in it for you?

Participants receive:

  • 5,000 euros for supporting services to (further) develop the business idea
  • 1,500 euros per team per month as a contribution to the living costs of the team members
  • an individual qualification programme
  • targeted networking opportunities with music companies from Hamburg and relevant industry representatives
  • a free accreditation for the Reeperbahn Festival Conference and the Reeperbahn Festival
  • flexible coworking workstations in Hamburg if required
  • the possibility to win a prize money of 5,000 euros at the final Music WorX Pitch

Music WorX is a publicly funded accelerator. Therefore the founders do not transfer any shares of their company to us.
