The Music Business Network is an organization dedicated to connecting entertainment industry professionals, students, and musicians with the services they need in order to succeed. The Network facilitates the connection between these types of individuals (who are in need of services) to other members who supply the services they need. We host networking events, provide educational information and service, offer career guidance, and enable all members to find one another to gain assistance in furthering their career goals.
The Music Business Network was initially created in December of 2008, as a response to numerous NYU music & entertainment industry students’ requests for more music business networking opportunities. After its creation The Network opened up its doors to entertainment industry professionals and companies, driven artists/musicians, and all students of the music and entertainment industries. Since its inaugural event 20+ networking events (including 2 DJ showcases and 2 digital networking events) have been hosted throughout Manhattan and New York State’s Capital District (Albany, NY). Currently 4,000+ individuals (from 52+ countries) are members of The Music Business Network.
The Network is an exclusive and private entertainment industry networking, career development, and educational service. Prospective members must meet the following criteria: be an entertainment industry professional or company, student of the music and/or entertainment industries, or a musician; have a demonstrated passion for, skill in, and knowledge of the music and entertainment industry; want to actively participate in the growth of theirs and others’ respective careers; possess strong written and verbal (English) communication skills; be outgoing and personable; and have strong relationship management and interpersonal skills.

Only companies and industry professionals are screened for membership (to ensure a high level of quality of products and/or services offered and delivered to other members).
