About

During Crafty Mart's Crafty Canvas sessions, creative entrepreneurs will be learning how to formulate a successful and sensible plan for their business. They will also be creating pitches for the purpose of attracting potential investors. 8-10 of the most compelling pitches will be video recorded and showcased in Creative Catapult. This is where you come in!

On October 6th, Creative Catapult will be held at The Bit Factory from 6-8pm. Throughout the evening, our Kickstarter patrons will watch the different videos and vote on their favorite artist pitches. The winning artist receives a $1500 microgrant to help catapult their creative business into success.

Crafty Mart appreciates your involvement at any level. Proceeds collected go to helping Crafty Mart continue its mission of supporting local creatives and promoting the local economy.

Risks and challenges

In order to make sure that this programming is something that is desired by the community, Crafty Mart launched this campaign to fund the inaugural Creative Catapult event to lighten the financial burden.

The main challenges ahead include spreading the word about this event and getting creative entrepreneurs to sign up for the Crafty Canvas program so that Crafty Mart has a wide range of small businesses to curate from.

Crafty Mart is more than qualified to handle these challenges with the wide network of entrepreneurs and partnerships of like-minded organizations that has been developed over the past eight years.
