(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indiana Arts Commission announced today the opening of applications for the 2019 On-Ramp accelerator program for early career creative entrepreneurs.

On-Ramp provides artists with ways to enhance their business skills including professional coaching for development of business plans or career goals, new connections with potential Indiana supporters, partners or collaborators, and access to special funds to take them to the next level in career development.

"We received more than 100 applications for the inaugural On-Ramp program, and 36 Hoosier artists and creative entrepreneurs were selected to participate in a three-day creative entrepreneur course designed to strengthen their business skills," said Artist and Community Services Manager Anna Tragesser. "We were thrilled by the response to the program. We know Hoosier artists are serious about building successful careers and we are committed to helping them succeed."

The 2019 On-Ramp program will offer a three-day On-Ramp Creative Entrepreneur Course May 9 - 12, 2019 in Nashville, Indiana and will focus on strengthening business skills, career goals, and community engagement learning. Those who complete the course are also eligible for the On-Ramp fellowship, which includes up to $2,000 in project funding.

Application for On-Ramp must be completed through the Arts Commission's online application system. Deadline for application is 4:30 p.m. (EST) January 17, 2019.
