1FG identifies budding creatives—youth & students with no prior experience—in the communities it operates, & provides them with hands-on training in a creative endeavor of their choice while simultaneously executing concert-style social events in which these artists are given a platform to perform. 1FG intends to scale its model to urban areas across the United States and create a recognizable brand. 1FG further seeks to bridge the various social gaps that exist between socioeconomic classes in urban areas by focusing a significant share of its talent development resources on youth from low-income areas.

Due to social & financial barriers, these youth often have limited access & exposure to secondary education. For the average musically inclined individual, costs of equipment and perceived time demand of formal lessons represent significant barriers to entry to pursuing music performance/production. 1FG seeks to facilitate an inclusive avenue for social exchange for diverse populations.1FG’s primary service is Event Management & Promotion. 1FG organizes social events, which generate revenue in the form of ticket sales in addition to educational services in the form of musical training. 1FG provides an avenue for easy entry to music production & performance through providing no-cost & low-cost DJ trainings, recording studio sessions, performance rehearsals and platform tailored to individuals at all levels of exposure. 1FG identifies its primary market for ticket sales as college students within the cities it operates, in which it recognizes the unique self sustainability and accessibility of this market; each year, new students replace those who graduate, and college campuses typically concentrate the majority of their student population into one physical location. There are roughly 330,000 college students in the state of Maryland, 20 million in the United States, and 171.8 million worldwide. 1FG identifies Corporate Sponsorships and Universities as significant revenue stream and large potential customers, respectively. At an institutional level, universities will be interested in 1FG as a vehicle to provide both a space for student socialization with limited liability, as well a source of event entertainment at reduced cost. 1FG projects its ability to do business with Universities through proxy event management services and artist booking agency.
