IAMU Accelerator | AboutUs
The Rise of Artpreneurs | Creative Innovators
IAMU (International Artist Management Union) is an accelerator for creative entrepreneurs and a hub for artist management partners and resources.
There are 5 stages in company growth. Early stage Investors are often interested in the first two stages. Incubators are more geared towards start-up businesses. Accelerators work with current businesses that already have existing revenues and are going through their growth stage. IAMU does help start up programs but our main goal is to identify those businesses and organizations that can have immediate and direct impact on Kansas City’s economic climate and help them quickly scale; the results of which pave the way for more startups i.e. artists to be successful.
