Good Morning,

With more people using smartphones than ever before, the creators’ economy is booming and how! Over the last 18 months, the number of creators surged to over 50 million across global social media platforms, as well as on homegrown ones such as Trell, Moj, Josh, MX TakaTak, and others.

Recognising the burgeoning creator ecosystem and the new wave of entrepreneurship that comes with it, YourStory has partnered with homegrown social commerce platform Trell to bring you the Top 100 Creators challenge

As part of YourStory’s Creators Inc. franchise that celebrates the works of both established and emerging influencers, the initiative aims at identifying, celebrating and accelerating the journey of digital creators who make extraordinary, unique and engaging content.

“The content creators of today, who are in effect micro-entrepreneurs, operate much like lean startups in their own right. So at YourStory, where we celebrate entrepreneurship in all its forms, I’m excited that we’re all set to usher in this new wave of entrepreneurship, and serve as a launchpad for the creators and influencers of tomorrow,” said Shradha Sharma, Founder and CEO, YourStory.
