I was recently in Lisbon at the magnificent closing event of the first JUMP European Music Market Accelerator series, doing some speed tutoring and catching up with other tutors as well as fellows. It’s an amazing programme and it’s been great to be part of it, along with so many wonderful people in the music business across Europe.

Over the 3 years of fellowships, JUMP had 45 participants from 38 countries, and 18 tutors, including myself for two years, plus an incredible 1000 speakers. In Lisbon we made plans for how to strengthen and grow the community and our networks.

There was a keynote and performance from Bishi, who I worked with on the WITCiH Digital Festival last year, and a keynote on ethics and Web3 from Bas Grasmayer.


The JUMP #Mashup event took place at Lisbon City Hall and at Hub Criativo do Beato home of Startup Lisboa.

Big thanks to the JUMP team and I hope to be back for a future programme.
