Artist Entrepreneur
Program Intent: Artist Entrepreneur is a pilot program for Top Tier artists (Artists rated 3 or Platinum Album Certified Artists) who are significantly investing in growing their business via rights they control such as masters, copyrights, and/or live performances. It complements the Company Envelope while replacing the Comprehensive Artist program and is designed for increased flexibility for eligible activities and expenses during the program year – aligned with FACTOR’s fiscal (April 1, 2023 – March 31, 2024). The funds in this program are awarded competitively among eligible applicants depending on the committed investment and the available budget. See more at the Artist Entrepreneur program page.

CRTC Consultations
The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission held hearings from November 20 to December 8, titled The Path Forward - Working towards a modernized regulatory framework regarding contributions to support Canadian and Indigenous content. FACTOR had the privilege of speaking at these stakeholder consultations and transcripts of all presentations made be found here.
The hearings generated much media coverage and an article in Billboard Canada outlines some of issues at hand and includes quotes from FACTOR's President & CEO, Meg Symsyk.
