We are a socially conscious incubator that advances profit-sharing creative projects. We support, educate, and develop entrepreneurs, coders, artists, creators, and developers from all walks of life. We drive forward projects through SMARTER collaboration from the foundation up. But most importantly, we build and multiply spaces for creators to come together to combat the all too common and interconnected epidemics of isolation, mental health, and homelessness in the creative community.

Creative Community + positive Vibes

A Profit Share Based Incubator System

The largest portion of profit always returns to the creator (up to 60%), but a portion of the profit also goes to participants who helped along the way (it takes many hands to put together a resilient, revenue generating art project), and the rest goes to our community, overhead, and other projects. This makeup is determined, through a Design Thinking workshop where we use a Business Canvass Model to articulate the project. a feedback loop All projects go through Alpha Beta Launch phase. We are always drawing from and revising our approach based upon the community’s evolving needs.

Isolation Homelessness & Mental Health

  • A key problem #CUTO eliminates is the creative entrepreneur’s experience of living and working in isolation. It's hard to find spaces with like-minded individuals, and it's hard to survive in a linear world of 9 to 5 when creation is abstract and increasingly non-linear. It’s hard to monetize your art by yourself, and it can become discouraging or prohibitively expensive trying to find the right people to help.
  • #CUTO eliminates isolation by fostering a community of talented individuals, and allowing you to share in their knowledge, skills, and resources. This enables creators to focus on the skills you’re strongest at. “Unicorns” can work within our creative spaces, or at our events, or on their own projects by themselves or as part of a team.
