Musicinfo has received the Outstanding Startup prize in the OTEC -Overseas Talent Entrepreneurship Conference-, the largest startup event in Mainland China, held this July in Beijing. There were 23 companies participating in the competition from countries like the USA, Great Britain, Germany and Singapore. Companies had different backgrounds ranging from AI to biosciences and from robotics to big data. All companies had already gotten through a preliminary qualification in their own countries, so the level of the competition was as high as it could be. By the sheer fact that Musicinfo was chosen to compete with these huge cutting edge companies in AI, biotech, robotics and big data, opens the opportunity for Musicinfo to expand our presence in China and provide better service for all our artists.
Though the big prizes were handed to Wandelbots, Ainostics and Qury, Musicinfo did not leave empty handed. Wandelbots, which makes it possible to program industrial robots easily without writing a single line of code, won the 130,000€ investment prize; Ainostics is specialized in AI based image processing technology which helps to diagnose dementia more easily; and Qury has developed a new AI based search engine system which allows to access all the content from apps without having to install the app to the user’s phone.
The prize awarded to Musicinfo includes access to an accelerated company registration and work permit processing in Beijing, with a possible $15,000 to $45,000 grant, a one year free work space, media investment services, business start-up trips to different cities in China, and business coaching programs, to name a few perks. After the competition, Musicinfo negotiated funding with several investors and new music services with several local players.
After the event, and true to our nature, we headed down to the Dusk Dawn Club, aka DDC a Beijing hutong live music venue to soakin the culture and listen to the cool progressive band called Swarrm. We also met Temple bar's owner who was eager to invite Western musicians to perform in the club!
