By Lisa Curtis A few months ago, the idea of running a crowdfunding campaign to raise $50,000 terrified me. I had a full-time job and hadn’t told many people about my startup, Kuli Kuli. My own father still couldn’t pronounce the name of the plant that we were trying to make the next big superfood (for reference it’smoringa — MO-ring-GA). Making me even more nervous was the fact that every high-volume crowdfunding campaign I read about seemed to have a full-time staff…

“Hollywood Will Permanently Adopt Crowdfunding”

Indiegogo co-founder Danae Ringelmann doesn’t think it will be long until every studio in town is taking advantage of the crowdfunding model not just to raise an audience, but also to raise money, for their their own blockbuster ambitions. “Its not that far away, actually,” Ringelmann said at TheWrap’s Media Leadership Conference, TheGrill, Tuesday at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills. “What we are going to see is studios recognizing the value of unleashing a fan base early before the…
