An accelerator program for startup and pre-scaleup tech companies in the music industry

Reverb is a 4-week program for growing technology startups and pre-scaleup companies in the music and sound industry in Canada and internationally. As a founder, you’ll learn new skills, tools and strategies to scale your business.

Each startup is guided by a dedicated Advisor and has access to industry experts throughout the program duration. The rigour of one-on-one work with Advisors helps you prioritize and focus on business activities, with the intent to establish a 12 to 18-month growth roadmap for your business. As a result, you’ll complete the program better prepared to take advantage of accelerators and investment opportunities.
