    PATREON San Francisco
    Patreon is a membership platform that connects creators with their biggest fans and enables those fans to become paying members, or patrons, of their favorite creators. Co-founded in 2013 by YouTube star Jack Conte of the band Pomplamoose, we believe that every creator in today's digital economy should get paid. Patreon is the best place for creators to establish ongoing and predictable monthly revenue and expand their career as a creator. Patreon also helps fans connect in a new way with the creators they love most. Patreon works with over 100,000 creators and is on track to send $1billion to creators this year who have Patreon pages, whether they are creating podcasts, music, fiction, game streams, online videos, photography, visual art, and more.
