Jack Conte is a quirky, smart and talented musician — turned tech entrepreneur, CEO and co-founder of Patreon. What is Patreon? Well, Jack basically built it to help creative people get paid for what they love to do. 

On Patreon, you can let your fans become active participants in the work they love by offering them a monthly membership. You give them access to exclusive content, community, and insight into your creative process. In exchange, you get the freedom to do your best work, and the stability you need to build an independent creative career. And just this week Jack and team raised another 155 million dollars series F at a $4 Billion dollar valuation to ensure they can continue to do next-level stuff. 

Between NFTS and Beeples $69 sale to musician JZ joining the Twitter board and announcing “Super Followers” to compete with Substack and Patreon…Jack believes these are all basically the same convergence of what he calls The Second Renaissance. Join us as we do a deep dive into this fascinating world.
