Historical

The Internet is still in its infancy. It's easy to see that photography, television, the music industry and the publishing world are undergoing monumental changes. We are building a platform which will be at the forefront, guiding these changes. We will be working to ensure that the new system is better for creators and those who enjoy creativity.

Creators have historically have a difficult time finding their audience. The internet has untapped potential to globally connect people with creative works they love. We will provide that connection. We will help creators to share their work with the world. We will help them to find their audience. Professional creators inevitably struggle to earn an income. We will join forces and help to improve the financial outlook for creators by introducing a number of ways to realistically earn money.
