Get a chance to pitch your innovative ideas at ADE Tech

Friday, 12 July 2019
For the fourth year ADE's Companies 2 Watch competition will zoom in on the best new ideas and innovations, related to the music industry.

Following the recent news about ADE being on the lookout for Cultural Collaborations and ADE Beats sharing their favorite moments we continue with conference news on the Companies 2 Watch (C2W) program of this year.

Does your company innovate on the cutting edge of music / live and technology? With C2W we are issuing an open invitation to all innovative companies - from startups to established organizations - to submit their ideas in order to have a chance of winning a spot in the finals on the main stage of the DeLaMar Theater during ADE Tech on Thursday, October 17th.

The winner of C2W will be monitored, supported and promoted for an entire year up until the ADE 2020 edition. We will be following the winner's every step, as well as sharing their story with electronic music fans and music professionals around the world.

Last year's winning company was Amuse, which was founded in 2015 by music executives with a collective ambition to re-imagine how artists break through and how labels are run. Amuse built a record label on top of a music distributor, offering free music distribution to everyone, where artists keep 100% of their royalties while still owning all of their rights. With the help of a user-friendly and transparent interface, artists can track their progress daily and see how people listen and download.

Submit your ideas

ADE is looking for projects in the fields of technology, data, hardware and software that the developers believe can make a genuine difference to the future of the music and entertainment industries. The initial pitch should not be longer than 200 words, giving a clear outline of the project and what it is intended to achieve. New business models are also eligible to enter but must have demonstrable relevance to an existing industry sector.

We look forward to receiving your ideas with the subject title "Submission C2W" at [email protected] before August 10th.
