Why not the accelerator?
Currently, we have no plans to run an accelerator in 2018. Portfolio is the next evolution of the first-ever music-tech accelerator program in the U.S., which kicked off three years ago at the Nashville Entrepreneur Center. After running this specific accelerator along with other accelerators and programs at the EC, we’ve leveraged participant feedback and learnings to create Portfolio. This program model takes the same resources of the original accelerator program - connections, curriculum & community - but revamps how they are delivered so that they are custom tailored to each entrepreneur's needs. Additionally, by stretching out the program offering from 3 months to 12 months, the program pace is less interruptive and more sustainable. We will be able to accept more teams into the program at a single time, while also delivering more relevant value as it is needed and the entrepreneur is ready. The mission of Project Music is to foster innovation in the music industry, and this helps us do that.
