Arts Commission Develops 'On-Ramp' For Creative Entrepreneurs

A new accelerator program aimed at boosting creative entrepreneurs in the state has launched. On-Ramp, an Indiana Arts Commission pilot initiative, offers business skills training and professional coaching, and will serve as a connection point for potential supporters, collaborators and funding opportunities. It involves a three-day Creative Entrepreneur Course set for mid-May in Madison.

Anna Tragesser is the IAC artist and community services manager who serves as program manager of On-Ramp. "It's aimed to be flexible enough to support folks wherever they're at in their creative business, and we of course hope to see all of them move ahead in whatever that looks like for them," she said. "We'll be doing lots of learning throughout the year and watching what happens, so we can continue to adapt it in future years."

The program will initially include up to 35 artists. Participants who complete the Creative Entrepreneur Course can apply for the On-Ramp fellowship and up to $2,000 in project funding that comes with it. Executive Director Lewis Ricci says "On-Ramp is designed for artists and creatives looking to energize their business thinking, whether they are starting new, looking to deepen their business understanding, or find themselves at a professional crossroads."

The application deadline is March 1 and you can click here for more information.
