Are you an experienced professional developing an innovative idea, which could have an impact
on the music industry? Do you feel you are missing the necessary tools, knowledge and networks
to support its conception? Then JUMP – the European Music Market Accelerator is right for you!

Organised by a network of six acclaimed European Festival and Conventions (MaMA, Un-Convention, MIL,
Athens Music Week, Nouvelle Prague and Linecheck), JUMP provides a framework for music professionals
to develop innovative business models. It aims to help the music sector adapt to the recent transformations
of the market, while encouraging it to work on a transnational level.

For nine months (March-December 2019), you will have the opportunity to follow a unique programme
during which you will:

  • Develop your idea, while benefiting from regular personalised advice from your tutor (a renowned expert)
  • Gain valuable knowledge about the music industry by attending Europe’s leading music festivals and conventions;
  • Strengthen your network and presentation skills by partaking to the JUMP activities
  • Exchange with and learn from your peer fellows from all over Europe and beyond

Developing an idea, can be a lonely business and it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the number of steps and procedures required. Selected participants will be assigned to a tutor – an experienced professional, who will follow the development of your idea and support you in its formation.


In parallel, you will strengthen your knowledge of the music industry and acquire a very useful overview of the business at European level by attending the six festival and conventions of the JUMP network, and two events to be determined according to the needs of the selected fellows.
