IHUB: OUR MUSIC STARTUP INCUBATOR

AIM’s music startup incubator iHUB is creating a vibrant and innovative environment that will foster the evolution of the industry. 

Innovation is a team sport. iHUB brings together the startups, companies, investors and industry expertise that helps new companies, and new technologies to thrive. 

The iHUB collaborators and connections all have a vested interest in supporting and growing the size and influence of the music industry, and include people from the top companies and startups not just in Australia, but across the globe. 

Add to this the benefits of being part of the Australian Institute of Music, with our industry connections, the expertise of the academic staff and the students building their future careers and learning through internships with the startups.
