Round-table discussion

This conversation among music industry professionals follows the first music startups meet-up of Made in Pitch in Pécs in January 2019. The startups that work with cultural issues such as music making and distribution contribute their innovation and also represent cultural value online. We created this event because we strongly believe that encouraging cooperation and communication among industrial parties and music startups gives the new developments the chance to be introduced, networking and also brings them closer to find financing for their projects. The wide publicity and media attention of the Startups Night 2019 gives a good frame for the event.
