A robot dragonfly, a new-born baby and a museum. They all have one thing in common, that they were crowd-funded through the platform, Indiegogo.
Founded by Danae Ringelmann, Slava Rubin, and Eric Schel in 2008, Indiegogo aims to democratise the way that the world supports and funds campaigns for the arts, charity, government, technology and more.
I caught up with Danae at London Web Summit to ask her about what inspired the site, her favourite projects and the future of the platform.
Already with the ability for projects to be funded internationally in dollars, pound sterling and euros, Indiegogo has been a global site from the very start. On Monday, March 4th 2013, Indiegogo announced its partnership with Adyen, the global payments solution. This allows the site to take payments by PayPal, credit card, bank transfers, giros and more, throughout Europe and Canada. Adyen will continue to add new local payment methods for Indiegogo in other geographies in the coming months.
Check out my video interview above for all of the details about the new partnership between Indiegogo and Adyen.
