Set up your profile
Complete your profile
After you have created your STORYHIVE account, you can access your Profile in authenticated state. If you are not logged in, login to STORYHIVE and click onto your Profile image (top right).
From account registration, your profile page should be partially filled with key information (Account info, STORYHIVE Profile, Grant eligibility and Diversity info). You can make additional edits at any time to your profile by clicking on Edit Information.
Before you get started on your funding application, it is highly recommended that you complete your profile as a part of a successful funding process. Completed profiles will be shown in the Creator Directory as well as in Project pages that you have participated in.
When you are done with editing your profile, click Save to save all changes to your profile information. And once your profile is complete, your profile is public and can be seen in the Creator Directory.
