No More “Starving Artists”!

Effectively connect through/to/with art in order to enhance the well-being of the world’s socio-economical communities.

We do not like the close brotherhood of the word "Starving" with "Artist"

Unfortunately, for the majority of the world’s talented artists, if not “homeless”, “starving” has been and still is how they best describe themselves.

Difficulty in finding success

Less than 0.05% of the artists have been able to find the right golden team or better to put; connections to transform their priceless art into a relaxed life style.

The paradox of art

That is while over 90% of the middle and upper class population in the world use some type of art-form to decorate their homes, offices and even themselves.

This screams a great imbalance.
While both supply and demand is high, they’re not rightly connected.

  • When it comes to talented artists, our strong Goal is to assist as many talented artists as we can to grow from “starving Artists” to “Flourishing Artists” who can live a relaxed life they deserve relying solely on their Art and talent.


If you are an artist, don’t wait

Thus we specially encourage “Upcoming Artists” and those who never had the chance to exhibit to apply.

No More “Give and Give Some More”!

Being in Business for over 15 years we absolutely believe that giving that does not follow a balanced return is unhealthy for the business, economy, as well as the society.

The nature is built based on the laws of equilibrium and any cause that violates this rule is unhealthy and unstable.
Thus using our business knowledge and expertise in Communications, we connect businesses and artists effectively to assure any sponsorship or collaboration is a two-way street with the businesses receiving a value as invaluable as to what they are giving.

We provide start-ups, investors and venture capitalists, and businesses that need exposure and marketing with valuable opportunities:

How is your Start-Up connected with Art

Examine the Gold

By attending Connekt Expo VC Event, you will connect with peer international VCs and investors; learn about the latest innovations and VC trends, and find investment opportunities.

Bringing VCs and top start-ups from all over the world together

One major challenge facing venture funds across the global venture sector is that some of the most interesting and cutting edge research is not necessarily being done in the places where VCs sit. Connekt Expo VC event aims to solve this problem.

Not only investing in big ideas is Gold but also time is Gold

Participating Start-Ups are selected carefully by our expert panelists to assure every single pitched idea is a Golden opportunity. You need to only listen to assure if the presented opportunity is in-line with your interest and industry.

You can discover more surprises by attending the VIP day

All participating Venture Capitalists will also get a free pass to the VIP day of Connekt Art Expo where you get a chance to connect with our discovered artists, buy art direct from them, enjoy the confrontation and collaboration of upcoming artists vs. top chefs.

  • Connekt Philosophy
    Connekt Philosophy

    Us, the Connekts, believe if we are not cavemen today, it is because of the realized inventions that happened through timely collaboration of Creative, Productive, and Business Minds. Given how majority of creative minds are introverts, and the busy schedule of business minds and the strategic mind of productive minds both demand for an efficient communication skills for ideas to turn into new chapters in civilization, Connekt is born by a group of Creatives and Entrepreneurs who through research and development introduce systematized approaches to facilitate such connections.
