Social media’s buzziest audio-chat app is now inviting creatives to join its accelerator program.
This past Sunday, Clubhouse announced the launch of its Clubhouse Creator First program which aims to help aspiring creators and hosts on the app build up their audiences, connect with brands, and also monetize their shows, The Verge reports.
Among this week’s Town Hall updates, Clubhouse shares that it will be choosing 20 creators to mold and support and help bring more value to the app’s buzzy model.
The platform’s application asks a plethora of questions for prospective Clubhouse influencers, including which platforms they’re currently active on, their current reach, tools that would be most helpful on the app, shows they’d like to develop, and more.
Today’s Town Hall Updates:
We are launching our first creator accelerator program, Clubhouse Creator First. We are looking to support and equip 20 creators w/ resources they need to bring their ideas and creativity to life. Details and application here: https://t.co/kmKjQvoUBK

Clubhouse’s new program arrives just as the platform will be celebrating its one-year anniversary on March 17, after a massive year of success and expansion from its crop of users and investors.
To date the app is valued at $1 billion according to Fortune, which is largely attributed to the innovative content creators who have been actively networking on the platform.
Applications for Clubhouse Creator First close on March 31.
