OUR MISSION

Fund the Creative Economy

Starflow is empowering a world of creative minds. We provide the infrastructure that enables creators to focus on creating and capitalize on their knowledge, passions and creations. Our mission is to help every creator in the world with the ability to live off their art.

We believe we are on the eve of another “macro disruption” based on consumer habit change: Media- & content consumption is moving from advertising to pay-for-premium models. We are getting closer to a consumer-controlled world, and every company that spends money on advertising will be forced to find a new way to do business.

Today, we all live in a digital world, where knowledge, data and content is distributed and consumed between people, but controlled and monetized by a few, but big organizations.

While there are many explanations for the growth of paid content & subscriptions, it is undeniably driven in part by a frustration with the onslaught of advertising that we are subject to. Advertising has always been a “tax” on our attention. Historically the interruptions were limited and we had little control over the handful of channels we read, watched and listened to. But the rise of digital media has put more control in people’s hands. When you give people freedom to get what they want, when they want it, they will seek to get it without paying that attention tax.

Advertising doesn't care how you feel about content, and if the current system stands, content that people love and connect to will become rare while content that is distracting will be the norm. Starflow is our attempt to slow that trend, and in the long run even to stop it. But it's not a problem that can be solved by technology––it must be solved by people.

We believe that good art is worth paying for. Starflow’s platform provide creators with the tools that enables them to make a living off their art, and by that helping them continue add more and better value to their fans. As a creator on Starflow, you own everything that you create––we act as pure infrastructure, simply here to help you grow your business.

Starflow welcomes creators of every kind - artists, athletes, writers, YouTubers, entertainers, podcasters etc., to allow their followers to become real fans by supporting their creative careers with actual money, instead of just likes and comments. Through subscription models, membership levels or simply just putting a piece of art behind a paywall, creators will achieve creative freedom on a whole new level, which means they focus on the things they're the best at and provide fans with the content, knowledge and stories they love. No ads, no spying, no exploiting and no ugly tricks that incentivize clicks instead of beauty. Just fans paying creators to make the work they love.
