Call for applications - Music WorX Accelerator 2018 (Germany)

Music WorX is one of the few accelerators worldwide, specifically aimed at start-ups and entrepreneurs from the music industry. Up to four new companies are funded through a compact, three-month programme and work hard with the support of experts and mentors from Hamburg’s music industry to develop their business ideas even further.

The Music WorX Accelerator programme is aimed at founders from all over Europe who want to realise their start-up in Hamburg. Throughout the programme, their work will be based in Hamburg. Once the programme has finished, the company headquarters should remain in Hamburg and/or relevant business relations in Hamburg should be maintained and expanded. Music WorX is financed and organised by the public sector but also cooperates very closely with a large number of companies from the music industry.


Each team receives €5,000 for support services to develop a business idea.

€1,500 per person (for up to 3 persons per team) as a subsidy for living costs (and/or other cost such as travel)

Participating teams receive an individually created qualification programme in the form of weekly workshops and individual consultation based on their needs.

The organisers bring our start-ups with Hamburg companies together and network with relevant industry representatives.

All teams will receive free accreditation and the opportunity to present their ideas at the Reeperbahn Festival Conference and Reeperbahn Festival.

During the three-month programme, the teams will have flexible workplaces in a coworking space in Hamburg.

Deadline: 17 June 2018
