12.14.21 – The Current State + Future of the Creator Economy, With Ronak Trivedi

Filed in Upcoming Episodes on December 5, 2021

The Creator Economy. This term refers to the economy in which those who create content get funded directly by their audience through sources such as Patreon. In the creator economy, the audience not only funds their creators but also participates in the decision-making process, influencing the direction which the creators take.

While many have indicated the creator economy as the switch from an ad-driven, attention-based monetization model to a direct user-support model, U.S. creators are still overwhelmingly dependent on advertising revenue. As the creator economy continues to grow, it’s time to take a hard look at the consequences of an ad-driven model and consider the viable alternatives already implemented elsewhere, particularly in emerging markets.

Ronak Trivedi is the founder of Pietra, a new platform that gives creators the tools to bring a product line to life from start to finish. Joining Adam, Ronak (Ro) shares his thoughts on the current and future states of the creator economy.


  • What the Creator Economy truly means;
  • The current state of the Creator Economy;
  • Where the future is headed;
  • How Pietra is lowering the barriers of entry for entrepreneurs;
  • What capabilities Pietra offers to help creators launch brands;
  • And so much more!

If you are a part of the Creator Economy, you definitely need to listen to this!

You know how it is. You post an ad for a position in your company and then someone (probably you) has to sift through dozens of applications and resumes hoping to find the hidden gem.

If only there was some kind of technology that could sort through them all for you, and present you with just the cream of the crop.

Oh wait…there is! Michael Yinger is co-founder of The Sieve; a cloud-based AI driven platform designed to help the recruiting and hiring community take the guesswork out of evaluating and ranking resumes against the required and preferred skills for the job.
