Matching Dutch Media Music Creatives to Top Entertainment Executives in LA

After a successful season last year, we are happy to be back with a new series of NL Media Music in LA sessions. The first up will be hosted by Ownors, an US based marketplace that connects the entertainment industry executives to creators and musicians for recurring virtual one-on-one mentoring. Throughout this session they’ll give you an idea of what this mentoring could be like and more importantly, will provide you with an outline of the L.A. music industry. During the several breakout sessions in this online panel you get a chance to gain feedback and insights from multiple top executives of the L.A. music scene.

So, are you composer, publisher or creative within the media music industry and are you seeking to do business in LA? Sign up through the Ownors’ Eventbrite page. This meeting has reached its full capacity, sign up is no longer possible.

The NL Media Music in LA sessions are in collaboration with Netherlands Business Support Office (NBSO) in LA, Dutch Music Export and Creative Holland. The second and third sessions will take place on October 28th and December 2nd. Keep an eye on our socials and newsletters for more information.
