Creative microbusiness

Increase economic security and reduce barriers for entrepreneurship

We are a global community of creative entrepreneurs who are advocating for policy reforms that make it easier to start and grow our businesses. Individually, our businesses may be small, but together we represent significant economic impact and opportunity.

Yet, policymakers often overlook the Etsy community when considering new laws, and fail to understand the challenges we faceā€”from managing complicated tax laws to obtaining the social protections that traditional employees can access. Governments can help reduce those barriers, but we need to educate them about our unique experiences and needs.

By coming together and advocating for ourselves, we can enable creative entrepreneurs around the world to thrive.
