Nina Radojewski works for AIM, the Association of Independent Music, a UK organisation representing independent labels, digital distributors, label services companies and self-releasing artists amongst its 800 members.
Within AIM, Nina looks after the AIM Academy, an initiative providing training to AIM Members as well as other interested industry professionals. Previous events have included topics such as music law, distribution, sync, digital marketing, and how to raise money in the music industry through funding. AIM will continue its successful AIM Academy events with the goal to take them into all of the UK via various partnerships.
Nina also sits on UK Music’s Skills and Education Programme Board and has been very active showing students routes into the music industry via the Music Academic Partnership Programme.
Prior to working for AIM, Nina moved from her home country Germany to the UK to study Vocal Performance at the Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) in Guildford. After her time at ACM Nina immediately got an internship for AIM which has since developed into her full-time job.

Most of us get into music through passion. We don’t start by thinking about how to build a business, we mostly think about making music and then trying to connect with people out there.
The fact is that the minute you get paid for what you do, you have started a business whether you intended to or not. But what does it actually mean to start as a business? What is involved, what are the costs and how do you make money? Also, how do you develop a sense for business without compromising your artistic vision – can you have both? The earlier you think about these things, the more likely you are to succeed. This panel will offer insight and practical advice to getting started as a Creative Business in music in the 21st Century.
