Get started with music

Music WorX is Europe's first publicly funded incubator for startups in the music & tech sector. We offer effective start-up assistance and sustainable networking for talented founders from the music industry.

    Get started with music

    DAWs, Shazam, Spotify - it's hard to imagine music production and consumption without digital technologies. We incubate startups active in the fields of music and tech. 

    The Incubation Programme

    Hard facts first: Music WorX is an icubation programme for the early stages of idea generation. Within three months, up to four teams receive financial support, trainings and coachings. An integral part of the programme is the Product Field. It helps you navigate the complexity of your product, align the perspectives of all stakeholders, find your focus, and make the right decisions.

    Soft facts second: You can expect a tailor-made programme that is designed around your needs to help you achieve your goals. We give you as few requirements as possible, and advise you on what's best for your business. This way, we create a learning environment in which you set the pace.

    Why do we do it this way? Because we like to break with traditions. We have learned from the past that an agile programme is much more helpful to startups than predefined trainings.

    Access to industry and decision-makers

    Music WorX cooperates closely with a number of companies from the business world. We use the network of the Hamburg music industry with its major labels, publishers and media houses, the international festivals and conferences. Suitable mentors are on hand to provide you with professional input and individual advice.
