Creative Entrepreneurship Program
MIT Connection Science Logo

The Creative Entrepreneurship Program, hosted by Berklee in collaboration with MIT Connection Science, allows students to survey the intersection of music, technology, and innovation with two world-renowned institutions. The program explores and practices the philosophy that the creative process and entrepreneurial journey share the same DNA. Leveraging MIT Connection Science's expertise in data science to explore innovation and emerging technologies, participants will explore the cutting-edge of the creative economy using tools like blockchain and artificial intelligence.

Through seminars and workshops with Grammy Award–winning artists, serial entrepreneurs, and top data scientists, students will dive into music industry trends, learn the basics of scientific research, and practice developing an idea from prototype to presentation and publishing. Student teams will collaborate to design a hands-on project, write a white paper, and develop the startup mindset needed to be dynamic thinkers and makers. Participants will also have direct access to the Open Music Initiative, a music industry consortium comprising major companies across the music supply chain.
