Rockstar Paris #Music

Every two months, we put the spotlight on a specific industry with the potential to change the way we live, communicate and learn.

Rockstar Paris isn’t your typical pitching event. We turn entrepreneurs into rockstars! Get your Triple A ticket and connect with your peers before and after the event, nominate your favorite startup and forge new partnerships in an intimate gathering. Our events sells out at 150 attendees. Well, rockstars.

Our September session is dedicated to Tech & Music startups. The music industry is always reinventing itself, from production to distribution to education. We will showcase the best innovations in a series of 3 minute pitches and award the next music rockstar at the end of the show.
