From June 27th to July 6th
Universal Music Group is participating in this year’s music acceleration program through its recently announced UMG Accelerator Engagement Network. Representatives from UMG will be on-hand during the program and UMG executives may be assigned as on-going mentors for certain of the start-ups within the program.
UMG, the world leader in music-based entertainment, launched the Accelerator Engagement Network in October 2017 to partner with generalist accelerator programs throughout the world to assist in the evaluation, mentorship and development of innovative music start-ups. The UMG Accelerator Network is currently partnered with the Axel Springer/Porsche Accelerator Berlin), NYC MediaLab (New York), Sparklabs (Seoul and Taipei), LeanSquare (Belgium) and China Accelerator (Shanghai).
Two things stood out and complemented each other perfectly: the quality of the workshops and the speakers, coupled with the possibility of presenting to VCs and experts and gathering insight from them. These two things allowed us to rapidly gain a lot of understanding about ourselves and our positioning in the industry.
The best part for me was meeting a group of like minded people and learning from them. The workshops and advisers provided me with invaluable insight, understanding and ideas.
