A NEW independent fund to support music managers in England and Scotland has been launched by the Music Managers Forum (MMF), in partnership YouTube Music.

Twelve-month grants of up to £15,000 are available, as well as training, mentoring and advice from industry professionals.

The MMF says it envisages the grants will appeal to people in full or part-time employment, who are aiming to move into full-time management with their own company.

“The programme is for managers who are already building a track record  and our aim is to encourage applications from all genres and backgrounds,” says MMF general manager Fiona McGugan.

The Accelerator Programme for Music Managers has also partnered with the Scottish Music Industry Association (SMIA).
