We are a network of Makers, Doers, Fixers and Dreamers — collectively creating a better future.
Born out of a genuine passion to make the creative industries more open and diverse, founder Pip Jamieson launched the platform in 2014.
Looking to the future, with the rising march of automation — creativity is our secret weapon. Soon machines will drive, serve customers, code, clean, manufacture, do our accounts and legal work. What are humans still good for? Creativity! So if we want our children and grandchildren to have jobs and make our economies thrive, we need to support the Makers, Doers, Fixers and Dreamers that bring creative ideas to life.
That is what The Dots is all about; connecting, supporting and championing the people, teams and companies that make ideas happen.
