Acceleration Program (Leansquare x The Universal Music Group Accelerator Network)

Be part of the first MusicTech start-up program in Belgium !

Organized by Leansquare, a VC fund based in Liège, this program aims to support the most promising international musictech start-ups.

10 start-ups will be selected to be part of the program. Teams will be individually coached by experienced entrepreneurs and music industry experts in order to set up a financial dossier and potentially raise funds by presenting their projects in front of a panel of investors.

The program will kick off with a series of workshops focused on entrepreneurship, innovation and communication. These workshops will cover topics including sales, negotiations, investors relations, growth hacking, digital strategy, communications and storytelling.
