WATCH: Danae Ringelmann On How To Build A “Gatekeeper-Free Crowdfunding System”

This short video from The Guardian features Indiegogo’s Danae Ringelmann. In the video, she discusses Indiegogo’s approach to building what she calls a “gatekeeper-free crowdfunding system,” which is almost certainly a bit of a jab at compatriot platform Kickstarter. Kickstarter takes a curational approach to crowdfunding whereas Indiegogo basically allows anyone on their platform with a few minor exceptions.
