Viewfinder: Watching Creative Entrepreneurship with Kickstarter Co-founder Yancey Strickler
Because this lecture took place at a museum and not a tech summit crawling with venture capitalists, Strickler was able to focus on what Kickstarter does best: small creative projects. He talked about Kickstarter funding for independent comics, board games, video games and films that wouldn’t otherwise make it to production. He discussed that half of the Kickstarter team spent their time vetting the 300-350 projects that came in on a daily basis, to make sure that they followed the rules. It was fascinating to learn the ins and outs of the company’s success and hear about its creative spirit.
