  • About

    RISE. is a music accelerator for artists who are seeking support to build a viable business.


    Inspired by Silicon Valley's startups programs, our aim is to discover new acts, provide mentoring on entrepreneurship and the new music industry, and invest in the most promising projects to take talented artists to the next level.


  • How it works

    We follow a simple 3-steps approach: Detect, Accelerate, Launch

    1. Detect

    Song submission and selection


    An artist and/or a team apply to our program.


    We evaluate all music submissions and provide feedback.


    Selected applicants will be given the option to join for step 2, the acceleration phase.

    2. Accelerate

    On-site 1-week program​ in Paris, France


    The program includes mentoring sessions, meetings, and after-session follow-ups in a collaborative space.


    The acceleration program covers topics like "refining & testing your music project", "building your music business", "distributing your music", "social media and digital marketing", "music industry growth-hacking".

    3. Launch

    Invest, develop and rise


    The acceleration workshop culminates in the selection of up to five acts by our team and mentors.


    These artists will each receive services and support worth €20,000 to take their talents to the next level, along with an artist development deal covering all revenue-generating activities.
