About Us

I’d like to introduce you to Collective, an app, a company, and a philosophy that we think is a modest solution to an increasingly urgent problem.


We, as creators, deserve a platform that puts us in control, not just of the content, but of the business model, and the company itself.


For the past two decades, a handful of people have been made fantastically wealthy from the content posted by a global community of creators. The founders and VC’s behind these platforms have little in common with the community that creates the content, yet the wealth, as always, is concentrated at the top.


You are invited to join us in flipping the old model.


We’ve built a platform that benefits both the creator and their community. When creators host on Collective, they are showing their content while enabling their community to connect with each other — they will meet new people, have meaningful live conversations, and hopefully come out of the experience a little better off than how they came in.


We’ve designed a business model that benefits the creator first. Instead of selling ads, we support the creator in earning an income. If the creator is successful, then we are too. Our fates are aligned.


We will be a steward-owned, public benefit corporation. We are codifying our mission within our corporate governance, giving the creators, a seat at the table when it comes to key decisions regarding the future of the platform.


We believe the future is one that can benefit the many, can uplift creative work, and can offer beauty and fun in the process. 


The future is coming. The future is Collective.
