stARTup Sacramento



The Phase 1 mission of stARTup is to enhance the Sacramento area art community by selecting artists on a quarterly basis to support them in developing the essential tools and know-how in business and marketing. The award is designed so they can establish and grow their business while learning the skills to sustain it over the long term, as well as contribute to local economic sustainability.


In time, the greater vision of stARTup is to become a 501 (c) organization in order to support more artists each quarter through direct one-on-one business-development awards,  group education through classes, workshops and publications in business and marketing, and also to develop new platforms to showcase local Sacramento artists.
