Art, photography, and images we are exposed to on a daily basis can shape the way we perceive the world around us. Many times, these art forms are highly filtered to show a very specific type of image that casts out minority groups, reserving the industry for few kinds of people and particularly excluding members of our youngest generation. This is where Scopio comes in. A Forbes30Under30 business, their founder, Christina Hawatmeh made it her mission to build a global place where anyone can tell stories through their art, and where companies can find visual building blocks for authentic experiences, in order to allow Gen Z, the most creative generation, to monetize their skills and share their stories freely. Many businesses have already caught on to how powerful Scopio’s mission is. They have attracted various companies such as Facebook to real estate professionals, to school teachers all looking to use authentic imagery. What’s unique about Scopio’s mission is that they turn every phone owner into a paid photographer in less than 3 minutes. Artists sign up and list their skills and can make money off illustrations, art, videos and more, creating a platform that is open and accessible to all people from around the world, opening the way for the 99%.
