ANote Music was founded by Marzio F. Schena, Matteo Cernuschi and Grégoire Mathonet in January 2018 in Luxembourg, and became part of our EYnovation program. To this day, the total amount raised by the company stands at over € 1.5 million.

ANote Music’s mission is to ‘bridge the gap between music and finance, creating an accessible platform for music investment, through continual innovation, user first technology, and a love for music.’

At the regional phase of Startup World Cup 2022, ANote were shortlisted among the 10 best Luxembourg startups. They went on to win the Luxembourg stage of the competition, followed by F4A in second place and WEO in third.

The win in Luxembourg gave ANote Music access to the world semi-finals in San Francisco. They successfully reached the Grand Finale of the Startup World Cup 2022 and competed among the 10 best startups with a strong pitch.

ANote greatly benefited from this once-in-a-lifetime experience with plenty of international opportunities to expand and get recognition.
