Patreon

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2018

Patreon is the go-to platform for creators hoping to fund directly from their audiences. Artists use the site to raise money for a variety of projects. The idea is simple: let patrons pay their favorite creators for exclusive content. In 2017, 1 million members raised more than $150 million from roughly 50,000 benefactors. To help artists grow, Patreon released new tools last year, including a CRM dashboard and the ability to stream live video exclusively to patrons. (It also, smartly, ditched a plan to tack a processing fee onto each pledge after artists protested the idea.)  In a world where it's hard to find a meaningful income without selling your soul, Patreon helps creators find their audience and make real money.
