Artists are creative people, so you don't tend to think of yourself as a small business. But you are.

You have the same issues and challenges as any startup - business organization, product development, marketing, accounting, legal, customer services, and more.

The Artist Startup Program is a unique startup incubator-inspired program that, in about a month, gives you the answers to the test, so you are ready to take it.
