Start up!

BIME Start Up!

The space for innovation and entrepreneurship where you can discover all the technological innovations related to music. The ideal place to foster new business opportunities and generate synergies with other entrepreneurs, corporates and investors.

In this context we have the StartUp Village, an exhibition area to show a selection of 16 projects to all the professionals attending BIME and 8 of these proposals are selected as finalists for the STARTUP! COMPETITION, a key meeting for the promotion and internationalisation of startups in the creative, music and digital industries. In this competition, the best national and international startups compete to present the most disruptive project.

Thanks to the high participation of investors, corporates and the development of startups, BIME START UP! has become one of the leading international events in Europe and Latin America.
