Our Music Tech Event (Round Five) Is Here! And this time it's all about starting, managing, and making your Music Tech company (or project) profitable.
The Music Technology Group Presents:
Startup Lessons from Music Tech Entrepreneurs and Venture Capitalists.
We have partnered with leading global venture capital seed fund and startup accelerator 500 Startups to bring you an entrepreneurial-focused event. Our agenda looks great (see below), with excellent presenters from 500 Startups and music startup DownToJam.
As usual, pizza, snacks, drinks, and beer will be served--all free of charge (hence the need to RSVP to this event).
