Are you a tech founder with a dream? Are you a social entrepreneur with a bold vision for social change? If so, then you are well aware that what often stands between a great innovative idea and its execution is financing!

With greater and greater frequency, crowdfunding has been filling the money gap. Beyond the dollar, crowdfunding has enabled start-ups to demonstrate a market for their products, gain valuable rapid customer feedback, cultivate customer advocates, and increase awareness for their brand and offering. On the Social innovation front, crowdfunding empowers individuals around the world to participate in something bigger than themselves and take ownership in the projects they believe in.

* Indiegogo is the largest global open crowdfunding platform, empowering anyone, anywhere, anytime, to raise funds for any idea. Since launching in January 2008, Indiegogo has enabled campaign owners to launch campaigns from every country around the world. With millions of dollars distributed globally each week, Indiegogo is democratizing the way the world raises funds for any project - creative, cause-related or entrepreneurial.

Her background includes McKinsey & Co., early Netscape and executive roles at a variety of tech start ups. More recently, Amy was the CEO of Full Circle Fund, an instructor at Berkeley’s Haas School of Business, and an advisor at Stanford’s StartX Accelerator. She is especially passionate about the intersection of technology and social change.
