Patreon powers membership businesses for creators.
Finally, creators get what they deserve.
In 2013, YouTube musician Jack Conte was looking for a solution to his problem: millions of people loved his videos, but only hundreds of dollars were hitting his bank account. This didn’t add up, so he drafted up an idea (hey, we’re Patreon) and brought it to his college roommate Sam Yam, now co-founder of Patreon. Now it’s 2018, and Patreon is the solution to this same problem for over 100k creators.

“I first launched my Patreon page as a way to fund the content that we were putting out on a weekly basis. Now, we use Patreon as a membership program to not only fund content, but to hold local events and give supporters exclusive perks.”
Wait But Why is creating high-quality blog posts
“Creating stuff online is still pretty new and the world hasn’t really figured out a good business model to make it sustainable. Patreon is the best solution to this problem that we’ve come across — a simple way for the people who really want to help support Wait But Why to do so.”
The Rubin Report is creating a talk show about big ideas and free speech.
“Joining Patreon was the single best career move I’ve ever made. We started a production company, got new equipment and built a home studio all in the last six months, and this is just the beginning. I’m truly beholden to nobody, well except my dog, and that’s really the greatest gift you can get as a content creator.”
