Indiegogo an international crowdfunding website founded in 2008 by Danae Ringelmann, Slava Rubin, and Eric Schell. Its headquarters are in San Francisco, California. Their mission is to democratize funding through an accessible platform. Along with Kickstarter, Indiegogo is one of the two most popular donation-based crowdfunding websites. Indiegogo is generally known to have looser guidelines than Kickstarter.
In February 2012, President Barack Obama's Startup America partnered with Indiegogo to offer crowdfunding to entrepreneurs in the U.S. Indiegogo also has a global presence with widespread campaigns. Since 2014, over 200,000 campaigns have been launched, raising millions of dollars to people running crowdfunding campaigns in 70 to 100 countries. Already-funded projects often use Indiegogo to create publicity or find distributors. Some of the most successful Indiegogo campaigns are technology products, such as Flow Hive and Sonders Electric Bike, and educational products, such as Restore King Chapel Now and An Hour of Code for Every Student.
