In Startup meets Artist (SmA), MediaFutures intends to accelerate innovation by combining the best of both worlds: the ingenuity of entrepreneurs and the creativity of artists. We will support teams consisting of a startup/SME (or group of individuals) and an artist/artistic company collaboratively developing a new concept of data technology and the arts. Startups and artists don’t need to have worked together before but do need to apply as one team.

Do you need help to find an artist or startup/SME to collaborate with? Then we have the perfect matchmaking opportunity.

DealRoom is the place to find your partner. Here, you can find artists, startups/SMEs, groups of individuals interested in participating in the SmA track. From 1 pm to 7:00 pm CET you will have the opportunity to virtually meet with all the artists and startups you are interested in working with. To take part, fill in a full profile, screen the attendee list ahead of time and book meetings with interesting contacts prior to the event. On the day, you will have 15 minutes for each meeting.

Now it’s up to you to find the perfect match! Happy matchmaking.
