Crowdfunding is the process of raising money from a large number of people in order to fund a project, a company, or a cause. ArtistShare is one of the many crowdfunding platforms that exist.
U.S. based, ArtistShare was founded in 2001, and launched in 2003 . It’s widely recognized as the Internet’s first “fan-funding” platform which later became the blueprint for many of today’s crowdfunding websites such as KickStarter, IndieGoGo and PledgeMusic. ArtistShare connects artists with fans in order to share the beauty of the creative process and ensure the creation of new artistic works. ArtistShare is about “experience” as opposed to just “product.” The company’s goal is to put the “art” back into the word artist. Their patented process allows fans to experience an artist’s creative process from its conception to its fruition. The company provides a solid platform and award-winning professional services for the entrepreneurial artist. More information on this unique platform can be found below:
