Frequently Asked Questions

The Creator Economy, a $100+ Billion market with over 200+ million content creators globally, is the fastest growing small business segment, and is offering a new pathway to self-employment. As this space continues to grow, the future of the Creator Economy points to a couple trends: creators becoming founders & creators using Web3 tools to unlock new business opportunities

 

With the abundance of entrepreneurial educational resources online, NoCode tools to build apps/digital products faster than ever before, and a plethora of platforms to gain distribution, this is the easiest time in history to create a startup. 

 

However, with creators valuing their autonomy and co-creating with their community of supporters, they need an alternative way to launch startups besides only relying on the traditional ways to do so (bootstrapping or venture capital). We want to help make the transition easier for creators to become founders by offering a turnkey solution to build with community.

"Trep" is a short word for entrepreneur, and the letter "o" stands for open; thus, the word "oTrep" means open entrepreneur.

 

The Internet has connected people together to create things we couldn't have created independently. We can see this all over the web, from Wikipedia to Open Source software. We believe that we can push the boundaries of this approach and bring it to the world of entrepreneurship, making it easier and faster to get started, less riskier, and more fun than ever before.

 

An open entrepreneur, or oTrep, is a next-generation founder who publicly builds startups with their community of supporters and offers a variety of incentives such as shared ownership via cryptocurrency tokens. 

 

Our goal is to help creators become oTreps! Learn more about this topic in our whitepaper.

It's a new take on hackathon events. If you’re not familiar with hackathons, think of them as “invention marathons'', where attendees dream up and bring to life ideas for digital and physical products. They're a great way to learn new skills, build a network, win prizes, find opportunities, and have fun. 

 

We are pushing the boundaries of hackathon events for creator communities by adding a sports league element to it. You can learn more in our whitepaper.

Not yet, as we are still experimenting with this approach ourselves as a team and want to work the kinks out before unleashing this platform to the world. 

 

Right now, the best way to know if this is something you may be interested in is experiencing it yourself. You can do that by requesting a guest pass to our founder's Collab Community.
