LinkedIn’s new Creator Accelerator Program is investing $25 million into the creator economy. As the competition to attract online creators heats up, LinkedIn is getting in on the trend with its own incubator program aimed at the business influencer space. The Creator Accelerator Program will invite 100 U.S.-based content creators to participate in a 10-week effort focused on coaching and coming up with creative ways to drive professional conversations on LinkedIn while having the opportunity to be featured on official LinkedIn channels and attain a $15,000 grant. A variety of creators—from experts in mental health and wellness, diversity and education, and more—are invited to apply and can access the application until October 12. LinkedIn is also hosting virtual events this month aimed at amplifying resident voices. (Tubefilter)
