Ryerson launches Toronto incubator for music industry

Toronto's Ryerson University is hoping to help students, alumni and entrepreneurs innovate the music industry with its newest incubator, the Music Den.

Based out of the Transmedia Zone in the school's faculty of communication and design (FCAD), the Music Den launched last night with three startups; Sodatone (a web app for A&R professionals), the youth-focused magazine Canada Talent and Lefty Music, a development and production agency.

The Music Den gives startups access to industry experts for guidance and mentorship opportunities.

Along with the Music Den in the Transmedia Zone, Ryerson's launched numerous incubators - including ones for fashion, urban energy and social ventures - as part of its zone-learning model.
