Test this new app for Dayton’s artist entrepreneur community

September 3, 2019

Daytonian Trey Hope has launched a new app designed to be a “talent hub” for the region’s artistic community — & he’s looking for beta testers to try it out.

Hidden Gems allows regional artists — musicians, producers, photographers, visual artists, designers, chefs etc. — to create a single searchable profile to connect them with future patrons & customers.

“It’s geared toward people without formal, traditional business models,” Trey explained.

The regional nature of the app ensures that you’ll find artists within your own community to support, he said.

The app is a passion project for Trey.

“Artists in Dayton have never had the recognition they deserve,” he said. “I wanted to give back to my community & help my friends out.”

So far, the app offers categories for artist entrepreneurs working in the music, media, entertainment, food, tech, and art spaces. When these artists create their profiles, they can easily link back to other social media feeds or playlists or portfolios.

Download the app on iOS or Android.

As he builds out the app, Trey is looking for feedback. If you’re an artist, what do you want to be able to share? If you’re searching for artists, what info do you want to find?

Let him know.
