MUSIC & TECH SPRINGBOARD PROGRAMME
In 2020, BPI and Music Ally launched The Music & Tech Springboard Programme, a new initiative designed to bring the music and tech startup communities closer together.
About The Music & Tech Springboard Programme: Springboard began as a free series of videos aimed at emerging start-ups looking to operate in the music industry. We found some of the most influential and high profile experts across various fields, from rights and licensing specialists, to self-releasing artists, to offer you tips and advice. Discover what the music industry really does, how it works, and how your startup could provide solutions.
What we offer: In addition to our free videos, the BPI was interested in building a community of fresh, emerging music tech startups. So, if you're a tech startup that's less than five years old or with fewer than 20 employees, and who wants to find innovative solutions to real industry problems, we can help you with practical steps. The Music + Tech Springboard programme is now accepting applications from startups wishing to benefit from:
A BPI Springboard membership, which offers startups access to all of the BPI’s resources – from market intelligence, to free training courses and access to networking events.
In addition, Music & Tech Springboard members can benefit from a range of insight sessions, tailored advice and guidance, opportunities to pitch your ideas to panels of record labels and VC investors*, and to keep BPI members informed of your product.
In order to qualify, companies must operate in the music and tech space and meet either an age (not older than 5 years) or size (no larger than 20 employees) criterion. Both UK and overseas applications are welcome. Record labels are not eligible to apply to Springboard.
CONTACT US if you would like to apply, or find out more.

*we cannot guarantee any investment or business deals on the back of these sessions, but they are still valuable opportunities to share your proposals with major labels and VC investors.
