Startup industries like influencer marketing offer unparalleled innovation, entrepreneurship, and opportunities. But oftentimes, creative ecosystems that rely on free user-generated content and ad-driven models can become hubs for wealth inequality. What does an equitable economy look like for career creators? This is one of the critical questions our key opinion leaders (KOLs) discuss in this episode of Creators with Influence, recorded on National Entrepreneurship Day at Soho Works: 55 Water in Dumbo, New York, in front of a live audience.
AIC Founder Qianna Smith Bruneteau, and co-host Karston ‘Skinny’ Tannis were joined by KOLs who shared their visions for the future of influencing and the economic structures needed to support the digital-first small business community in the U.S.
KOLs included AIC’s Summer Albarcha, LEAVE YOUR MARK and AIC’s Board VP Aliza Licht, Venable’s Alexandra Megaris, Fashion Creator and AIC Career Creator Club Member Marissa Ren, and Whalar’s Marinda Yelverton.
The American Influencer Council – AIC strives to destigmatize the business of influencing and to demystify creator culture through public goodwill initiatives like our Creators with Influence Podcast series.
