Recently we were interviewed by Reena Jadhav of Vator.TV . We did a 15 min one-on-one session where I went into a deep discussion of what is crowdfunding and gave generic tips on raising money.  We also did an interview session with Alfred Pena, CEO of Rhythmology.

Indiegogo VS KickStarter

 

I highlighted all the areas where the two websites differ. I didn’t highlight platform type because technically a project on KickStarter could ask for money in return for a simple thank you. Therefore all reward based platforms can be considered donation platforms as well, it’s just that their reward could be nothing. More important KickStarter only likes creative projects, it doesn’t really care what the rewards are. While everything and anything can go on Indiegogo. Lets review other…
