In October 2012 I started chairing Music Tech Pitch 4.5, which was a very interesting experience for me. Working with developers and small start ups is something that I’ve done for a long time as part of Palm Sounds, but Music Tech Pitch is a very different take on this.
Watching a group of start ups pitch their ideas and give everything in just three minutes was one thing. Having to cut them off when their time is up is another, but to make sure it’s all fair that’s what I have to do in my role of chairing the whole thing.
Overall it’s a great learning experience for me and I’ve met some truly inspiring and very interesting people as a result. I hope to keep doing it for as long as I can.
Here’s a bit more about the event:
Music TechPitch 4.5 is a platform to enable startups specifically within the music-tech industry from all across Europe to showcase their business proposition to a relevant wider audience, including VCs, music industry professionals and experts, journalists, as well as other aspiring and successful music and tech entrepreneurs. This pitching event is a unique opportunity to build more awareness, receive productive feedback from an expert panel, and network with key music-tech industry players.
More music tech stuff
So another MTP4.5 goes by. This one was really good. I had a great panel of judges and an a great bunch of start ups who were pitching. The debate and questions were insightful and I think that the start ups all felt that they’d had a good chance to get their ideas across. Interestingly…
I think I’ve been doing Music Tech Pitch for around 3 years now. It is interesting to see how it has changed over that time. Anyway. Here are a few pictures from the last one in April this year.
