Ringelmann

Danae Ringelmann is founder and chief development officer at Indiegogo, the world’s largest crowdfunding platform. Danae grew up seeing her parents struggle to get small business loans. She identified a fundamental flaw in the system: for centuries, access to funding had been controlled by a select few. So she created Indiegogo.

PRAISE FOR Danae

  • “Ringelmann grew up as the daughter of two entrepreneurs who struggled to grow their business and bootstrapped for 30 years. This experience made her question how money and investments work...To help solve this issue, in 2008 Ringelmann and her co-founders Eric Schell and Slava Rubin launched Indiegogo. Ironically, they were rejected 90 times by venture capitalists before raising their first dollar.”
