Music WorX is a public funding programme for start-ups from the music and tech industry with the aim to support business ideas and inventors. The Music WorX Incubator enters a new round in 2021. Within three months, up to four teams will receive financial support and individual trainings tailored to the precise development needs of their business.
Music WorX focuses on the early stages of the idea generation process. Up to four teams who have not yet or just recently founded their company will be selected for the programme. Each team will be supported in fine-tuning their ideas and will receive a financial grant.
The programme is organised by the public sector but cooperates very closely with a large number of companies from the local music industry. Mentors will deliver workshops, one-on-one coaching and advisory sessions as well as business development introductions. Music WorX will take place remote and (if possible) with meetings of the teams in the city of Hamburg. Depending on the composition of the teams, the workshops and coaching sessions will be held in English.
Applications are open to founders from all over Europe. The organisers are particularly looking for teams who have not yet, or just recently founded their company. Music WorX is supported by an advisory board consisting of 10 representatives with leading expertise in music technology and the music business. More information about the open call can be found here.
The application deadline is 6 June.
Music WorX is organised by Hamburg Kreativ Gesellschaft that supports Hamburg’s creative minds with contemporary offers which meet the individual needs of creative professions. In addition to workshops, lectures and networking events, HKG also offers individual consulting, coaching, crowdfunding and assistance in financing and finding suitable workspaces for authors, filmmakers, musicians, visual and performing artists, architects, designers, game developers and all other professional groups from the eleven submarkets of the creative industries.
