Learn what we do

"Products on Indiegogo are unique, more interesting. They aren’t like what I’d find on the market. They aren’t mainstream. It’s the newest tech that companies don’t even know will be popular."

83-time backer

"I come to Indiegogo to look for things that could be useful in my everyday life. I look for innovation – what kind of features does this have in addition to what’s already on the market."

Founded to Empower Innovation

Our founders were inspired to create Indiegogo based on their own experiences trying to make ideas come to life. Danae Ringelmann produced a play but couldn’t get funding to take it to the next level. Eric Schell struggled to fundraise for a Chicago theater company. Slava Rubin tried to raise funds to find a cure for Multiple Myeloma, the disease that killed his father. Then, they had an idea. They could use the internet to bring people together to empower innovation.

Danae, Eric, and Slava founded Indiegogo in 2008 because they believed that you should choose the ideas that come to life. You and your fellow innovation seekers should get to change the world. It’s time to start discovering the next big idea.
