15 start-ups will be selected to be part of the program. Teams will be individually coached by experienced entrepreneurs and music & e-sport 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.
