We The People was founded with the vision to create a hub for creators to have access to the resources needed to support their ideas and find success in local and international markets. Our "For Creators, By Creators" (FCBC) mission means that unlike other retailers, we seek to partner with you to provide you with training, a network of potential local and international backers, and a global creator community to support you in addition to providing you with an immediate retail channel for your creations. Learn more about us at Everything we do is designed to support our creator community because, just like you, we are creators ourselves, too.
