Announcing Graphy Creator Grant

₹100 Crore grant to help you launch your online school

Graphy is an all-new platform for creators to grow their audience, monetize their skills, and host live cohort-based courses. Our tools help creators launch their very own online school in under 60 seconds. Graphy has over 200+ active creators including the likes of Vishwanathan Anand, Abhi & Niyu, and Vidit Gujrathi.

The internet is now, more than ever, the most powerful medium for creators. Our web experience is defined by their creations and perspectives. Over the years, the creators' economy has witnessed a surge. The hurdles are much larger: high-quality equipment, a team, and branding are all essential. This demands the allocation of resources, which most ambitious creators lack. And very few are able to pursue their passion for creating content full-time due to limited opportunities to monetize. Creators are the lifeblood of the digital world. And working with inadequate resources can be a tiring process. It's not easy being an online creator in 2021.

We continually ask ourselves - what can we do to help the brilliant creators out there? How can we truly help them flourish? How can we help them achieve financial freedom? Our ambition to take a significant step forward for the ambitious creators founded the idea of Graphy Creator Grant.

What exactly is Graphy Creator Grant?

Graphy Creator Grant is a program designed to aid creators in establishing their online school and learning community. We are deploying ₹100 Crore ($14M) to be provided as grants over the next 2 years to the creators on Graphy who are highly ambitious in building an online school & learning community that they can be proud of.

Why should you apply for the Graphy Creator Grant?

If you're someone who wants to take control of your financial destiny (read "achieve financial freedom"), then the Graphy Creator Grant will help you do just that.

  • Our aim at Graphy is to help you build a solid & reliable revenue stream while also ensuring you have complete control over the content you work so hard to develop & the community you work tirelessly to build.
  • The purpose of the grant is to provide you with the initial capital required to kickstart your online school & build a highly engaged learner community, although you're free to deploy these funds however you see fit (you could make a compelling trailer for your course, hire a teaching assistant, fund your time, finally quit the job that's holding you back from working on your passion full time or anything else you can think of)
  • In addition to the grant, we'll even assign a relationship manager to help you build your online school & learning community, while also suggesting proven promotion strategies to help you grow your business. When you're working with us, you're never alone during any stage of your journey. We're always ready to lend a helping hand.

Who can apply for the Graphy Creator Grant?

  1. You're an influencer, educator, or subject matter expert (in short, you're capable of sharing your knowledge/skills in a factual, informative & engaging manner)
  2. You’re keen on sharing your expertise (in any area) with the world and monetizing your knowledge & skills while building a loyal learner community
  3. You've built a highly engaged online community (on any platform)

Way forward

We meticulously review all applications & we try to revert in a timely manner.

  • If you are selected for the grant, you will hear from us about the next steps within few days of submitting your application.
  • You will receive 50% of your grant post-approval & the remaining 50% post-course launch.

We're excited to be a part of your creative journey & we hope this grant helps you build the online business of your dreams! 🙂

Take care & stay safe!
