Who we are?
A profit share-based incubator system that helps develop creative entrepreneurs through SMARTER Collaboration
Profit share + creative community
- This community is designed for us to actively participate on projects; each project will be carefully mapped out on Trello and have a monetary value attached. The structure will be broken down into 4 milestones, each with its own tasks to reach there. These milestones are, Alpha phase (gather info), Beta phase (test it amongst close friends), Launch phase and Monitor. The largest portion of the compensation will always go back to the creator (up to 60%).
Why we do it?
- to develop creative entrepreneurs in to becoming unicorns
- To help solve isolation in our community
- Give artists a platform to focus on their work
- R&D the relationship between art, Homeless And mental health
A portion of the profit goes to participants who help along the project, and the rest goes to the community, overheads, or other projects. These percentages are determined before a project is launched during the Alpha phase. Community members can vote on which project to take on.
Simplified Methods Achieving Results Through Exact Rhythm
- All projects must start from the foundation up because a tree grows it's roots as deep as it needs to be tall. We start all projects through a Business Canvas Model. This determines time, scope, value, and whether the project is worth pursuing by the creator as well as the community at large. Once we agree on the project we continue through to the Alpha phase by streamlining all the information gathered down to a Project Outline. When we agree on the Project Outline we map out the project on Trello, which allows us to see how it can be monetized by establishing a timeline
