HEMI Incubator will launch a series of calls providing coaching & mentoring sessions, acceleration and incubation programs addressed to music entrepreneurs and companies from the 9 HEMI participating countries: Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia and Slovenia.
The first training programs will start in May 2021 . They will be developed in three levels, with an evaluating and selection process before each phase.
Three full cycles of HEMI incubator will be implemented in the course of HEMI project, addressed to general target groups divided into three categories:
- Artist-entrepreneurs – freelancing creatives, possibly micro business owners. They may have an idea which has potential for quick development into a minimum viable product/service (MVP/S). The idea/concept will relate to the business potential and the artistic skills of the artists can be treated as a core competence and not a business in its own right.
- Music companies – already working businesses (even if micro-) with a business plan, the key competence and the basic capacity to grow it. However, these companies may be in need of extra knowledge and know-how in business development, management (financial, team, operational etc) and could certainly use new networks and access to markets.
- Service providers – companies which can be not considered part of the music sector (from tech to ticketing to production services etc), but whose services are relevant for music sector actors. These companies have most likely fully developed organizational capacity to offer their services, but may need consultancy in business development specifically for the music sector, as well as access to new (HEMI) markets.
At this stage, we are “tuning the modules”, as well as the coaching, e-learning, mentoring and internships we will be providing to fellow music entrepreneurs.
