The Music Startup Academy is designed to reduce barriers to entry into the music business for entrepreneurs, by providing a clear roadmap to success through actionable insights into the core structure, legal framework, content deals, business models, and the “nuts n’ bolts” of getting things done to build a legal, streamlined, and competitive music property.
Be a part of this exciting program taking place at the legendary Quonset Hut, Nashville's first major recording studio on Music Row that produced some of the biggest recordings in history including Patsy Cline's "Crazy," Brenda Lee's "I'm Sorry" and Bobby Vinton's "Blue Velvet."
“The future of the music business is dependent upon technology innovation, but there are very few opportunities that provide the fundamentals of the industry for these entrepreneurs,” said Bill Wilson, VP, Digital Strategy & Business Development, NARM/digitalmusic.org. “Here in Nashville, it is our goal to build a bridge between these groups so more great new music-focused start-ups get to market quickly and achieve success.”
