The incubator provides support and guidance for each creative in the Incubator’s cohort through the development stage all the way to distribution.

Our support includes: financing their projects (via grant writing, crowdfunding, and/or private investment); finding legal support; assisting with strategic branding and marketing efforts; and more. Our creators are also given access to a wide variety of industry executives and professionals, ranging from film/tv executives, theater artists, agents/management, and award-winning entertainment creatives.
