Artist Funding Platform Patreon Gets Its Own Funding
August 05, 2013
Patreon, a funding platform for artists, musicians and various content creators, has raised $2.1 million in funding from SV Angel, Charles River Ventures, Freestyle Capital, Atlas Venture, Rothenberg Ventures and a group of individual investors. The company’s model is unique from other funding platforms in that it allows patrons to pledge to artists and creators for each piece of work they produce instead of for just a single project. Since launching in May 2013, Patreon has grown to over 2,000 creators who have collectively uploaded over 10,000 works on the site.
