Nashville's Project Music Portfolio 2018 is now open to entrepreneurs creating, launching or growing startups in the music industry. Startups do not need to be based in Nashville, but must be able to attend four, in-person, intentionally curated events over the course of the year. The new program takes the same resources of the original project music accelerator program - curriculum, connections & community - but revamps how they are delivered so that they are custom tailored to each entrepreneur's needs.

The Project Music Portfolio pitch:

  • Year-round support providing custom-tailored experiences & connections

  • Assigned Portfolio Manager responsible for optimizing the entrepreneur’s experience and helping maintain company growth

  • Industry-leading startup curriculum

  • Key industry insights

  • Access to 180+ advisors & 50+ music-industry leaders

  • Connection to partners throughout the music industry and startup landscape in Nashville

Applications are now open and will be closing January 26th, 2018. The program will run from March 1, 2018 to March 1, 2019 with 1 required event in Nashville per quarter.
