An Interdisciplinary Society Made Up Of Individuals And Companies Who Believe Their Lives And Work Get Better When They Come Alongside Each Other.
The CREDO Conduit society started in 2011 with free-skill based workshops and songwriters showcases. In 2016 we added a one-year collaborative workspace prototype in partnership with the Florida Hospital Innovation Lab (FHIL). During that period, the CREDO Conduit Society curated and housed 22 companies in a 6,000 square foot space on the campus of the Florida Hospital. These companies provide services and products in various industries, such as film, gaming, clothing and leather goods, food, events, branding, education and transportation social innovation, cause marketing, creative services, photography, and local news.
Due to the success of the prototype, my partners and I began looking for a way to scale its operations. The project caught the attention of Ed Haddock, Co-Chairman and CEO of Full Sail University and Founder of SunGate Capital, who was actively looking for ways to connect his entrepreneurial, creative and social impact DNA with local innovators. In January 2017 the joint venture for CREDO Conduit Society and SunGate Capital at SunGate Studios was born.
