Sacramento celebrates the first round of nine new creative start-ups, fueling new economic development opportunity in the regional economy. The Arts & Business Council of Sacramento (ABC) announced today that they plan to host a Grand Opening celebration of their new retail facility, hosting these new start-ups this Thursday, April 18th, 2013 from 5 to 8 PM at their new location, Suite #1047 in Sacramento’s Downtown Plaza.

This partnership helps us offer retail, event and economic development opportunities for 9 Flywheel residents this year. We are very grateful to the Downtown Plaza and excited to see them integrate local organizations.

Flywheel is the first incubator in the region strictly focusing on creative sector, offering direct business support and training.

ABC’s Flywheel Creative Economy Incubator members will showcase their works in the new shop, among them: Chalk It Up, Eben 07, Juniper James, Lacin/Christophel Mural Design, New Helvetia Theater, Project 4 Trees, Sol Collective, Sol Collective, Sugar Skull Art and Tapigami. Additional partners include Medium Rare Records, who will be buying and selling vintage vinyl and ReCreate who offers a drop in crafting studio featuring recycled materials and supplies.

It is one of the only multi-entity incubators (hosting three individual artists, three non profits and three companies are SP or LLC) and multi-disciplinary incubators (disciplines range from comic writing to fashion to hip hop to musical theatre) operating in the region, joining the Hacker Lab for tech start-ups and the Urban Hive, an idea-pollinating creative workspace.

The public is invited to enjoy the new space at the Grand Opening event, along with delicious bites, drinks, music and art. RSVP is required (email friends(at)sacabc(dot)org) along with a $10 appreciated donation.
