ADE 2016: Open Call for ADE's 10 companies to watch program

It’s all about innovation! Submit your ideas by September 14 and demonstrate your case in front of an audience of music business and technology professionals.

ADE loves innovation and creativity, it’s part of the event’s DNA. And in order to celebrate the very best new ideas relating to the music industry, we’re issuing an open call to both established companies and start-ups, asking them to send us the ideas that they believe could be game-changing for the entertainment industry. 

As part of Buma meets Tech, the initative of Buma to recognize global innovations and opportunities for the global music industry, ADE is looking for projects in the fields of technology, data, hardware and software that the developers believe can make a genuine difference to the future of the music and entertainment industries. The initial pitch should be no longer than 200 words, giving a clear outline of the project and what it is intended to achieve. New business models are also eligible to enter, but must have demonstrable relevance to an existing industry sector. 

We will then pick the 10 best projects to be showcased at ADE Pro in our 10 Companies to Watch series which will be held in the Felix Meritis. Each company will get a 5 minute slot to demonstrate their big idea in front of an audience of music business and technology professionals!

Submit your idea via ten-to-watch@amsterdam-dance-event.nl by September 14.
