Startup Network - Presenting the Chorus


Startup Network - Presenting the Chorus

The Chorus is a new home for music startups at Amsterdam Dance Event. Join our cooperative sessions and help us shape the future for Music Startups. We invite everyone to take part in this new year-round community and platform, kicking off on ADE Thursday at Felix Meritis.

Part 1: See the First Class of The Chorus Startups
This session will be the presentation of the 8 promising startups joined by our dream team of music experts, that will be the first generation of The Chorus. Their ideas and products are worth it to be seen by the world, and the team of experts and ADE will do what it can to support and to rocket launch them. This initiative will be the center of a multi-layered community where all founders and investors can connect and learn.

Part 2: The Music Startup Platform Brainstorm
During the brainstorm, the plans for each of the startups will be highlighted. We will also present interested stakeholder groups, discuss ideas and urge the entire audience to join. Startups often find it hard to get connected to the right investors and experts (and vice versa), and ADE Startups aims to serve to this cause. Everyone attending is invited to cooperatively build towards the best roadmap to how ADE Startups and The Chorus can become the most valuable gathering for music tech startups worldwide.
