We are pleased to announce an integral part of the programme for Rethink Music Venture Day in Berlin on October 24th. Paul Hitchman, Managing Director of Kobalt Label Services in the UK, will be our keynote interview to open the day, followed by a number of other discussions about entrepreneurship and music. We’ll then have pitches from 12 startups; one of whom will be named Rethink Music Venture Day 2014 winner!
Remember, submissions for startup pitches are due by Monday, September 29th via our Gust site! The day’s full programme will be available in early October, and attendance is FREE with registration via our Eventbrite page.
All artists are entrepreneurs. All entrepreneurs are artists. At Berklee, we believe the two are synonymous, and as a result we recently launched our Institute for Creative Entrepreneurship (ICE), which provides resources to help musicians and others in the music industry succeed as entrepreneurs.
In an effort to help ICE externally foster such entrepreneurship, Rethink Music will host our second annual Berlin Venture Day, at Factory in Mitte, Berlin on Friday, October 24th, 2014. The day will feature talks from leading entrepreneurs, investors, artists, and executives, and will offer up to 12 startups the opportunity to showcase their companies.
We’re also partnering with our friends over at Music Tech Fest on several upcoming events. They will host Music Tech Fest Berlin, which will exhibit new technologies for creating music, just after our event, also at Factory, on October 25 and 26.
Companies may submit their proposals for Rethink Music Venture Day via our Gust site (here) until September 29, 2014. Winners will receive space in Berklee’s music incubator in Boston, a free online course through Berklee Online, a free registration for Midem 2015, and $10,000 in in-kind legal services from Duane Morris LLP, as well as access to investors.
Registration to attend is free, includes a sponsored lunch, and you may sign up HERE.
We look forward to spending the day with you in Berlin!
