This Week in Crowdfunding is a newly launched podcast series hosted by OurCrowd’s Zack Miller and David Stark, where they cover the best in Crowdfunding with a frank — and educational — discussion about the issues surrounding Crowdfunding. Every week, they interview successful entrepreneurs, deconstruct campaigns, and hear from the smartest people around on this transformative, massive financing trend.
As crowdfunding gathers more momentum, crowdfunding activities are becoming more mainstream. This week’s guest on the program, Hillel Fuld, is a technology evangelist and the Chief Marketing Officer of Zula. On the podcast, hosts David Stark and Zack Miller talk to Hillel about his experiences meeting with thousands of technology teams and what qualities and behaviors can make a crowdfunding project successful vs. a failure.
Starkup Nation and Zack Attack discuss recently delivered crowdfunded products and the record-breaking Coolest Cooler campaign (I want one!) which just topped $13 million on Kickstarter.
Lastly, Stark and Miller share the good news that a company they crowdfunded is readying an IPO — a first for the crowdfunding industry.
