… “Believe it or not, we haven’t over thought it,” said Indiegogo founder Slava Rubin, in an interview with Upstart Business Journal. There are people who don’t have a core business who have looked at the Act as a business opportunity and tried to anticipate the changes, he said. “But we don’t really think that way because we have something that’s kept us really busy.”

Global crowdfunding revenue for 2013 isestimated to reach $6 billion.
Rubin told Upstart that people often ask him about whether or not the company has the implementation “coded up” and ready to go, but that it’s “kind of hard to have it coded up when you don’t know what the rules are.”
