It’s a music entrepreneurship course, created by Paideia Galiza Foundation and EOI – School of Industrial Organization, in 2019.

Designed to emerging artists, with musical projects at the beginning, the goal is to increase success in initial stages of their projects, and allow them to put themselves on the market in a short time.

Target Audience

This‌ ‌course‌ ‌is‌ ‌directed‌ ‌to‌ ‌emerging‌ ‌artists‌ ‌with‌ ‌early-stage‌ ‌music‌ ‌projects,‌ ‌and‌ ‌who‌ ‌want‌ ‌to‌ ‌launch‌ ‌themselves‌ ‌on‌ ‌the‌ ‌market.‌ 


Basically, this musical entrepreneurship initiative is a workspace for entrepreneurs and is designed to increase the chances of success of the participating projects, in the early stages of development. 

The main issue of Espacio Coworking Go2Work is to define a business plan, with special emphasis on the management, production, promotion, distribution and financing phases. 

It aims to offer specialized training so that students can identify all the agents working in the music industry, as well as learn about all its areas. 

In fact, the business models of benchmark companies in the music sector, such as “Esmerarte”, “Last Tour” and “Primavera Sound” are studied in depth. Students will also receive training in the Lean Startup methodology, which will be given by different experts in the field. The methodology is face-to-face, dynamic and practical, providing an atmosphere of reflection, dialogue and synergies in a unique learning environment, with renowned professionals in the field of musical entrepreneurship.
