Slava Rubin, Indiegogo CEO and co-founder, has become a regular suspect on CNBC where he gets the chance to talk about things other than crowdfunding. This time around he got to share his thoughts on Netflix. But beyond his opinion of Reed Hastings, he also got to share some insight into two hot crowdfunding campaigns: Flow Hive and Con Man video series.
Con Man, based off of popular series Firefly that was of course cancelled by the studio (I guess they did not want to have too much of a good thing and deal with all of the money they would have made), has raised about $2 million from over 27,000 backers.
Flow Hive, a bit of a sleeper crowdfunding campaign, has become the most funded project on Indiegogo ever – having raised over $6.2 million. Flow Hive is a new way to harvest honey. Or as Slava puts it, “you just turn the crank and be able to have the honey come out by gravity just like beer”.
