A group of Indiana artists is getting financial support to turn their creative outlet into a business venture. The Indiana Arts Commission says 33 creative entrepreneurs will receive funding through IAC’s On-Ramp 2019 Fellowship.
The fellows are part of an entrepreneur accelerator class where they learn skills necessary to run a business. “Like most creatives, I have experienced stress relating to financial knowledge, business law, marketing skills, and overall personal confidence,” said On-Ramp fellow Olivia Ulch. She says the skills learned during the three-day course alleviated those fears.
IAC says each participant was eligible to request up to $2,000 to implement their new career goals, business skills, and community engagement learning.
Other experienced creative entrepreneurs provided feedback to the students to strengthen the fellowship proposals. “My toolbox was topped off with access to a powerful diverse artist network among my fellow classmates; who mutually vowed to provide future support and accountability,” said Ulch.
