TGE ELEVATE

TGE Elevate at The Great Escape

The career development programme from CMU:DIY and The Great Escape




TGE Elevate is the professional development programme for early-career music business executives and entrepreneurs, presented by The Great Escape and CMU, and funded by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

The programme will return in 2021 as part of the online TGE Conference. 30 early-career music business executives and entrepreneurs will get an enhanced and curated experience as part of this year’s TGE, while a series of online Elevate Seminars will offer practical advice on a range of music business topics for aspiring artists, songwriters, managers, promoters, label and publishing execs, and anyone interested in working in the music industry.



THE SUPER DELEGATES
TGE will work with a number of its industry partners to identify early-career music business executives and entrepreneurs who would most benefit from participating in the core TGE Elevate programme. These super-delegates will have free access to the whole of TGE Online, as well as bespoke webinars, networking opportunities and Q&A sessions with leading industry executives, both before and during TGE itself.

The team of TGE super-delegates will include a diverse mix of early-career managers, promoters, marketeers and label executives, as well as self-managed artists and entrepreneurs developing innovative music businesses. As well as benefiting from the TGE experience, this team will form their own professional development network, able to share ideas, insights, advice and information between the group.



THE ELEVATE WEBINARS
TGE and CMU will also present a series of Elevate Webinars, offering practical advice on a range of music business topics for aspiring artists, songwriters, managers, promoters, label and publishing execs, and anyone interested in working in the music industry.

The webinars will provide user-friendly beginner’s guides to music copyright, music data, music distribution, digital marketing, and building and running a successful music business.

The webinars will be available live during TGE itself and on-demand after the event to all TGE delegates via the TGE Online platform.
