A new cooperative way to create content + get paid
A new cooperative way to create content and get paid
SuperHi Plus is a brand new model of co-ownership, with funding, support and creator-led tools, to help you kickstart your content and get paid.
Funding up to$12,000
For creators, by creators
Currently, creators face an all-or-nothing decision. Either do everything by yourself with all the risks and no guarantee of success, or by joining a platform and play to their rules.
SuperHi Plus is a brand new model of co-ownership for creators combining the best of existing content creation models, while reducing the downsides.
Funding and revenue
Receive between $6,000 and $12,000 funding to kickstart your content without risk or repayment, keep 80-90% ownership and start making money.
With our 12-week program you will never walk alone. We support you and nine other creators with tailored guidance, resources, and collaborative sessions.
We’ve developed flexible, open tools that don’t lock into a single platform, for you to succeed.
Who we’re looking for
Do you have ideas for content? We want to hear about it! Until now, SuperHi has specifically featured creative education courses, but your content doesn’t need to be educational or course-based. We are opening up content formats and encourage anything experimental. You do you, as long as it roughly fits with being...
The SuperHi audience is spread across the globe and comprises people who work, or want to work, in creative fields. The thing that unites them is a love of making things.
We love the internet. We’re focusing on web-based formats, so video, audio, text, interactive websites, or something brand new — anything a web browser can deliver.
No live sessions or Zoom classes (for now), so we can help you iterate and improve your content, plus widen its accessibility.
We’re looking for the weird and the wonderful — no topic or format would be considered too experimental. If you feel like you’d be a fit, please apply!
Beyond current models
With SuperHi Plus, we are knocking down the walls of the SuperHi platform. You will keep ownership and agency over your content, brand, community, and earnings.

e.g. Patreon, Gumroad, Teachable or create your own
Risking your time and money
No support system to help and guide you
No in-built audience
The join-a-platform model
e.g. Udemy, Substack, Skillshare
No initial funding or an advance to pay back
Locked into their platform
Harder to build your own brand

Your ownership + our funding
We aim to build a space where creators make sustainable incomes with their content. To kickstart and allow creators to focus on making the best content possible, we’re offering between US$6,000 to $12,000 without risk or repayment in return for 10–20% ownership.
You can make revenue through two main channels — direct sales and as part of shared access cards, such as SuperHi membership, where your revenue is based on the level of engagement your content receives across the creators.View calculator
Your ownership split is shared between all the owners of the content based on the percentage that they own.
Content ownership will be recorded on a blockchain to allow for an independently auditable way to view who owns what, along with tamper-proof records of ownership changes.
This is a 15% split of incoming revenue, which will go to anything that is integral to running the SuperHi platform. Such as paying staff, payment processing and hosting fees, as well as helping the ecosystem get continually better.
To incentivize the whole community, we are giving a 5% split towards a finder’s fee – think of this a little like a reward that goes towards whoever helped promote or support the content you produce.
A more aligned revenue stream
With this co-ownership model, we aim to align incentives for creators, members, and the SuperHi platform.
- For creators, SuperHi Plus de-risks making content by offering funding, support, and tools while they retain actual ownership and control.
- Members will receive more diverse, high-quality content, knowing that creators are paid fairly.
- For SuperHi, we want to help and support the most talented and emerging creators on the internet.
It’s in everyone’s interest to make high-quality creative content that people love. When you do well, we do well.
Your support system
Creating content can be an intense experience, from finding the right tools to keeping your audience happy. We’ve been there. That’s why with us, you won’t walk alone.
Your 12-week accelerator
Each cohort will support ten content creators, from idea to launch. The program will be tailored to your individual needs and your preferred content type:
Week 1 through Week 4:Research, planning, and training
During the first four weeks, you’ll work on researching and creating an outline for your content.
By the end of this phase, you’ll have your first piece of content ready to test, and your course outline completed, peer-reviewed, and celebrated.
Week 5 through Week 8:Content production: round one
In this round, you’ll work on creating content and delivering the first parts on a rolling basis.
Think writing scripts or creating assets, and planning your first release including marketing materials. Outcomes of this month will differ per creator.
Week 9 through Week 12:Content production: round two
During the final month, you’ll refine your production process and prepare for launch.
This is your opportunity to make adjustments based on feedback. You’ll continue producing content and iterate. Get ready for launch and celebrate!
Alongside your peers, you’ll be guided by your SuperHi mentors. From production and community management, to upgrading your brand, they will guide you through the program with 1:1 check-ins, workshops, events, and feedback sessions.

The tools you need to succeed
What if there could be a radically different way to host your own digital content without being locked into one platform?
Our new tools are based on current SuperHi technology, which now hosts over 14 million files for hundreds of thousands of websites and will be available for all. The tools are built on top of standardized, open-source developer tools, such as Git and blockchains. This allows creators to control how they present their content.
It’s your content, not the platforms! Tools built using distributed and decentralized methodologies mean that the content you make isn’t dependent on us to live and can run without the platform.
Collaboration, not competition
Our access card infrastructure makes it easy for creators to make wholly different revenue models that don’t exist currently. Want to create a community access card that shares revenue transparently between your friends? Now it’s possible.
Your brand, not ours
More Myspace, less Facebook. How people experience your content will likely be unique to you. With our tools, you have complete control over all parts of your content delivery, from logos to layout.
The access cards are built on top of NFT technology, which allows you to trade them on other platforms, import existing projects, or move your data away at any point. If you don’t love the SuperHi way, you’re not stuck with us.
Code or no-code
Create while using tools that you feel comfortable with. If you’d prefer to code your own way, for example with React or Vue, our tools will support a range of front-end tooling. Not a coder? No worries! Our tools make it easy to distribute your content in your unique style.
