The startups selected are able to engage with potential partners, advocates and users in order to receive useful and actionable feedback.

The 2017 Startups included: Record Gram, Jammber, The UpNext, BrandSnap & RapChat.
A3C launched the Startup Spotlight to help build Atlanta’s music tech community. A3C Festival & Conference has become an essential annual meetup for the music tech and hip-hop communities to network and build together. Atlanta is already the cultural capital for hip-hop artists and creatives, and the city has a strong and rapidly growing tech sector. A3C is committed to building a music tech community around the already vibrant hip-hop community.
Hip-Hop is the most important, influential and often largest user-base for many music tech startups. Hip-Hop artists are early adopters and frequently the most active and engaged community on most social and music platforms.
Hip-Hop, Music and Tech converge at A3C Conference.
