Creator-First Policy for the Creator Economy

Date TBA


Courtney Duffy


Even just a few years ago it was tough to imagine today’s reality, where the big tech companies & power players are investing in the creator economy, to a point where they’re competing over who can pay creators THE MOST. The world has come to recognize what Patreon & others have known all along which is that creators deserve to be empowered & valued. And it’s due in large part to recent & emerging technologies that this is all happening. At Patreon, we’ve taken an unorthodox approach to policy development that reflects that it’s 2021 & creators are rightfully, and finally, in the driver's seat, where they’ve deserved to be all along. They deserve a say in the policies we make that affect them. That informs what we do every day.
