iHub

Music industry innovation lives here.

IHUB: OUR MUSIC STARTUP INCUBATOR

The Australian Institute of Music is home to Australia’s only incubator dedicated to music startups. AIM’s iHUB is bringing the entrepreneurs, technologies and people together that are building the future of the music industry.

The AIM iHUB is home to the next generation of forward-thinking innovators driven to change the way we live through music. 

The convergence of music, technology and groundbreaking new systems is not just about finding clever new ways to make or distribute music. It’s now about something much bigger. We are exploring ways for music to revolutionise healthcare, children’s education, neuroscience, gaming, virtual reality, therapy and relaxation. In fact, transforming almost every aspect of modern life.

The iHUB is currently supporting the growth of six startups and on the lookout for more! If you are a founder with a company that has music at its core we’d love to hear from you. Even if you’re already involved with another accelerator program, if it’s music industry connections and knowledge you need, we can help. Get in touch
