MANAGEMENT CAMPS

WHAT WE DO

Closed intensive 3-week courses with a limited number of slots for participants (20-30). Online and offline. Speaker headliners are special guests from Europe and the US. The educational program is supervised by the Noux team. All information mentioned during the camp is confidential and is not to be shared neither in the form of presentations nor screen recordings.

LECTURES & OPEN TALKS

One-time lectures and interactive sessions for over 70 participants at a time are broadcasted on social media and all the information is downloadable afterwards.

For those seeking a one-on-one chat with the Noux Academy founder and a detailed analysis of their project, there are individual sessions where we advise on the artist's development strategy and other aspects of their career. The standard session is 1 hour but the participant is never limited in time.

INDIVIDUAL CONSULTING SESSIONS

Short-term workshops are both closed and slots-limited and open depending on the invited speaker - in most cases workshops by speakers from other countries are not to be broadcasted on other social channels or shared afterwards due to the exclusivity of their knowledge for the Finnish market and their sole presence at Noux Academy.

Dmitry is an artist manager and entrepreneur with a proven track record of numerous successful music acts and other projects. With over 15 years of professional experience and such artists that became globally known as Matisse & Sadko (Russia), Arty (Russia), R3hab (UAE) and others, he established his management company Noux in Finland pursuing the same values and goals as now Noux Academy does - develop the local music market and help local artists connect with the global scene. Dmitry is trusted by diverse reliable clients such as the world’s biggest festival Tomorrowland (Belgium), DJs #1 on the planet according to DJ Magazine – Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike (Belgium), one of the most Spotify-streamed electronic artists R3hab (UAE), Lost Frequencies (Belgium), DVBBS (Canada), Yves V (Belgium), Effemar (Switzerland), I don’t speak french (Sweden), Swedish Red Elephant (Sweden) and more. He has been operating in Finland since 2017 and so far has managed to scout several talents that now show considerable results on streaming and other artist aspects.

Maria has started her career in the field of PR and social media management expertise, having worked at the biggest electronic music festivals in Russia Alfa Future People (over 60,000 visitors annually) and then with specific artists. She stands behind the success of such names as Imanbek – a Grammy-awarded music phenomenon from Kazakhstan, Rompasso – platinum status artist and Swanky Tunes – a world-renowned DJ trio from Russia. Later and as she switched to project management, Maria began a new chapter in her career as she became the official representative of legendary UK record labels Ninja Tune and Domino Recording Co and their artists Bonobo (USA), Odesza (USA), Franz Ferdinand (the UK), Jon Hopkins (the UK) and others on CIS territories. Maria has been carefully collecting knowledge and picking up insights from her colleagues that are now converted into Noux Academy’s values and goals. The Academy name is a tribute to her main partner Dmitry and his company Noux who has had a great impact on Maria’s business approach and her scope of knowledge.
