PatreCon – A conference for creators

PatreCon is a 2-day annual conference held to bring creators from various backgrounds together for a collaborative and educational weekend with Patreon.  

Launched in 2016, PatreCon was home to 40 creators who joined together at our headquarters for talks and workshops that inspired, educated, and connected. The conference included a keynote by Patreon CEO and creator Jack Conte, talks by Chris Ryniak, Jason Higa, and workshops by industry leaders and creative professionals.

This year, PatreCon 2017 will take place in Los Angeles, bringing the same unique experience to a new city! More details on speakers, workshops, and events to come soon!

By invitation only, attendees are a diverse group of artists and creators all making something truly unique on Patreon.

Our Mission

Patreon helps creators get ongoing, sustainable paychecks directly from their fans.

Thousands of creators from musicians to podcasters, video game developers, comic and illustrators, and others are engaging and nurturing their fan-base in an intimate, immediate, and interactive way.

Our goal is nothing short of changing the very way in which creators are paid for their work, moving from ad-supported creations to payments directly from fans. Over 25,000 creators now make a salary as an artist on Patreon. Together, we have sent over $100 million dollars to creators, making it possible for them to continue populating the internet with beautiful things that millions of people enjoy.
