Accelerator

In July 2022 we launched the pilot for our Music Business Accelerator program. This program is designed to invest in Tulsa-based musical artists with tools and resources to help them level up in their careers. Over the course of a 6-week program, a cohort of nine artists receive business and entrepreneurial training, work with mentors, develop industry connections and find a community of support for their work. At the end of the program each artist receives a $5K grant to invest in their next musical project and ongoing support from program mentors. Applications for this program are currently closed.
