The Wallifornia MusicTech Programme aims to support promising international music tech start-ups by helping them better understand how the music tech industry and the VC world operate.
Twelve international start-ups were selected to take part in our nine-week Acceleration Programme, which took place online. Candidates had to be already earning monthly recurring revenue and active in one of four fields: access, fan engagement, value or smart venues.
The selected start-ups were individually coached by experienced entrepreneurs and music industry experts, who helped them put together a financial bid with the potential to raise funds. The programme included several keynotes and workshops focused on the global music tech industry, entrepreneurship, innovation and communication.
The start-ups’ commitment and active participation in the sessions came to a climax with the golden opportunity to go on stage and present their projects to experts and investors at the Pitch Competition taking place in person during the Wallifornia MusicTech Summit.
We warmly congratulate the winner of the Pitch Competition
Choosing between 12 talented start-ups was a hard task, but in the end we decided to crown AudioShake (US), which uses Artificial Intelligence to pull songs apart into their individual stems and instrumental tracks, opening music up to new uses in sync licensing, remixes, remastering, spatial audio, social media, adaptive fitness, gaming and more. Congratulations to the CEO and cofounder, Jessica Powell, and her team! We should also point out that this is the second year in a row that a woman has topped the podium.
