Gijs Bekenkamp is co-founder and CMO of Chordify, an online music learning platform which automatically transforms music you’re listening to, into chords you can play. Chordify was established in 2013 and since then has become a well-known name in the music field.
Gijs Bekenkamp started Chordify with a group of friends, after his own experience in bands. He had noticed for himself how difficult it was to convert music into chords. A friend was working on a PhD thesis about how to do this with an algorithm, and bingo! The rest, as they say, is history!
The case of Chordify illustrates the interdisciplinary partnerships and pioneering, experimental attitude which is so typical of Groningen entrepreneurs. Find out more and follow Chordify’s next steps on Founded in Groningen.
