The Man Behind Kickstarter

The Man Behind Kickstarter

“The innovation isn’t being defined by a board room, the power is with the people”. Meet Yancey Strickler Co founder of Kickstarter. In 2009 this duo unveiled a website that lets ordinary people provide support, often just $5 or $10 at a time for creative projects by artists, musicians, and filmmakers. Crowd funding has since transformed areas such as game design and hardware development as well. So far Kickstarter members have contributed nearly $1 billion to 55,000 projects, helping to launch the Pebble smartwatch, the Oculus Rift virtual-reality headset, playgrounds, orbiting satellites, and 20 movies that were screened at 2014′s Sundance festival.
