Such a thing only exists in Mannheim, the UNESCO City of Music: A Start-up Center especially for the music industry.
The Musikpark Mannheim is the first and so far only Start-up Center for the Music Business in all of Germany. Young entrepreneurs in the creative sector, who focus on the music business, can rent offices, studios or dance stages and are shepherded on their way, supported financially and otherwise and also benefit from services. Approximately 60 companies from all walks of the creative music business reside on an area of 18,000 sq.ft. and have so far created more than 200 jobs.
That makes the Musikpark one of the most powerful competence centers in the creative sector in Germany. It is one of the four pillars of the so-called „Mannheim Model“. If you ride the elevator up to the fifth floor of the Musikpark, you will find Die Küche that serves as a central communication platform for tenants and guests but can also be booked, just like the various event rooms on three levels, by external event managers. With an extensive dance and music lesson program, the Musikpark demonstrates that in this field it is also one of the leading education and training facilities in the metropolitan region.
