Artrepreneur: Fast Facts 

Artrepreneur is a platform for visual artists, organizations, galleries, schools and companies. We offer free and pro memberships providing access to tools and resources for building online profiles, applying for opportunities, selling works on marketplace, hiring talent, posting jobs, connecting, and learning about the business of art.

Artrepreneur: Our Story 

Our Founder and CEO sold a painting a few years ago and decided to become an artist. She realized firsthand how difficult it was to get started.

Information on the creative industry was impossible to find.  The Founder discovered visual arts market saturated with disparate sites, limited tools, lack of support services. Interviews were conducted with hundreds of artists and designers, as well as schools, brands, and organizations. It was then that she realized that the visual arts industry is in dire need of a destination site to provide professional networking and commercialization of artistic work, all on one holistic site.

It Is Possible With Artrepreneur 

The market is littered with single function apps. It is also highly fragmented: fine arts painters, illustrators, sculptors, etc while commercial artists include digital / industrial designers. The market is desperate for an integrated platform to connect talent and works with the buyers and employers.

A Platform That Mobilizes All Visual Artists & Their Original Artwork

Creating Successful Connections 

We saw the opportunity to bring those fragments together by creating one platform to meet the needs of all artist genres. It is our mission to create a connected art & design ecosystem to build the largest global database of visual artist talent and their works. We connect the talent with the buyers and companies.

When studying behaviors of artists & designers, they have a variety of goals, interests, & priorities that span across different creative disciplines and business activities. Artrepreneur is a multifaceted platform for all of those purposes. 

Artrepreneur is great for:

  • Portfolio purposes
  • Collaboration purposes
  • Selling purposes (digital showroom) - No commission on sales logged
  • Getting work or gigs

We do all the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) for our members to drive buyers to their profiles on the platform
