Happy Wednesday Creative Army!

As you know, Stage 32's continued mission is to democratize the entertainment business and the industry is taking notice in a big way. We are incredibly proud and honored that Stage 32 has been featured recently in Forbes Magazine, Business Insider, Inc. Magazine, and now we are thrilled to be featured in Benzinga

Money, money, money, money. Raising financing for films and other creative projects is always a challenge. That’s why we were thrilled that over 26,000 people attended our free Film Financing Conference. And now we’re even more thrilled that top business and finance platform, Benzigna, has written a comprehensive article about the event along with some highlights from our amazing speakers.

Thanks to all who attended and to the incredible executives who work exclusively with Stage 32 for selflessly giving their time, energy and knowledge so that the creatives within our community have the tools and the opportunity to shorten their paths toward success. If you missed the live taping of the film financing conference, click here to watch the full replay on demand (for free!). 

Here is a sneak peek from the Benzinga article: 

"The summit highlighted the power of knowledge and networking in order to stay competitive. You no longer have to be a Hollywood insider in order to effectively network and get a job. Platforms like Stage 32, the largest networking and educational network in entertainment, provide ample opportunities for connection, which is—perhaps—what this industry needs most of all during these times."
