Flywheel Creative Economy Incubator
The Flywheel Incubator offers Sacramento’s most talented creative start-ups the resources, framework, and exposure needed to take them to the next level. In it’s first year, the new program accepted 10 entities composed of non-profits, culture organizations, individual artists, artist groups and creative industry businesses. From June 2012 – June 2013, $160,000+ of in-kind services, facilities and training were provided to the residents. Five entities were accepted for the 2013-2014 term. The intensive 9 month program provides work space, training, mentors, volunteer consultants, and many of the marketing, strategy, financial, legal and communication tools needed to become an independent and self-sufficient operation.
Business Volunteers for the Arts
The BVA program helps create a sustainable arts community by pairing residents of the Flywheel Incubator program with volunteers lending expertise in the fields of PR, marketing, IT, fund development, accounting, business management, strategic planning and much more. Our business volunteers will assist the artists/arts organization and creative businesses that are residents of the program by consulting on short term pro-bono projects. This is an excellent opportunity for Volunteers to work in a creative environment while giving back to the community and building their resumes!
