About this Event

Organized by LeanSquare, a VC fund based in Liège (Belgium), this program aims to support the most promising international MEDIA+TECH start-ups.

The program will kick off with a series of workshops focused on entrepreneurship, innovation and communication. These workshops will cover topics including sales, negotiations, investors relations, growth hacking, digital strategy, communications and storytelling.

Running from July 1st to July 9th, the week of acceleration will consist of:

  • Individual mentorships with experts
  • Guidance developing financial proposals
  • Complimentary access to the WMT convention & networking events
  • On- stage presentations at the WMT start-up pitch competition
  • 1 on 1 meetings with music/e-sport industry executives and VCs
