Planet Hatch and Ignite Fredericton have partnered to deliver an Artrepreneur-in-Residence Program, a project designed to help aspiring artrepreneurs turn their passion into a viable biz.Local
Local artrepreneurs will be given the necessary tools to build their business and professional network through free resources such as business counseling, office space, access to networking events, ability to display and promote their product or service, and so much more!
The collaboration extends further to the Fredericton Makerspace and The Ville, granting free access to the Fredericton Makerspace workshop, equipment, and newly created Hot Desk room. We believe the arts and culture sector is an integral part of what makes an economy and ecosystem thrive. We’re here to help our artrepreneurs soar!
Commitment? One to three months, spending at least 5-10hrs min a week at the hatch. Sharing your expert advice as a mentor in our monthly Office Hours. Participating in at least one of our free networking events per month. Writing a blog piece introducing your biz and what you hope to learn as EIR. Participating in an exit interview and recommending another local artist. Who are we looking for? If you’re a creative, self-directed artist who wants to build connections and relationships within the entrepreneurial community, and eager to start or grow your business, you’re a perfect fit!
Application guidelines? Fill out the application form, which can be found on Planet Hatch’s BLOG page. It’s as easy as that!
Still unsure? Give us a test run. Come to the hatch, check out the space and meet with our team of experts. Every Wednesday we open our office and event space to the community, so host a meeting, work on your business OR just hang out on our big bluesofas.
