Where MusicTech Pros & Gamers shine

Acceleration Program

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.

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