MMF Accelerator Fund open for applications for music managers based in England and Scotland

14 September 2021


The Music Managers Forum (MMF), in partnership with YouTube Music, are delighted to launch the 4th round of the Accelerator Programme for Music Managers – the first ever independent funding and professional development initiative designed solely for artist, songwriter and producer managers.

The programme is aimed at individuals in full or part-time employment, looking to make the leap into full-time music management with their own company.

As well as providing twelve-month grants of up to £15,000, APMM will see successful applicants benefit from an intensive year-long training and mentorship programme, delivered in partnership with CMU Insights and Music Ally. The Accelerator Programme for Music Managers has also partnered with the Scottish Music Industry Association (SMIA) to ensure that managers living in Scotland can participate.

Applications for APMM are open now for managers based in England and Scotland.

Applications close 25TH October 2021.
